Rodney Falls and Pool of the Winds,
and Hardy Falls
The hike up Hamilton Mountain Loop (I only went as far as the falls) is steep but beautiful--then you come to the falls. Rodney Falls and Pool of the Winds, and Hardy Falls (all actually the same falls in my opinion) are breathtaking!
Hamilton Mountain: looks great from here. Before the summer of 2000 is over, I am going to make it to the top! I swear.
In June at least the wildflowers are magnificent. On the way down the trail I ran into several groups of youngsters identifying wildflowers. The kids were very helpful; their skills at identifying wildflowers were way more advanced than mine.
