Little North Fork Falls is a very short trail that ends in a rain-forest type gorge. An easy to slightly moderate climb offers a view of the waterfall as it enters the gorge and drops into Little North Fork Creek. Some people have described their trip to the falls as being enveloped in time as it gives one the impression of time standing still.
