Brandywine Falls

I have been wanting to check out this location for a few weeks now and it turned out to be a really nice spot.

This is the boardwalk that leads to the waterfall.

This is the mid-level of the boardwalk.  There are some stairs that go up to the top of the waterfall and stairs that go down closer to the base of the fall.

Exploring all the levels.

The waterfall was really neat and the boardwalk was very pretty, but that was pretty much it – not a whole lot to it.  However, we did find a trail near the entrance to the boardwalk.  That ended up being a very pretty walk.

The cutest little moss ball.  hehe

Pretty little flowers.

Gorgeous leaves!

Found a bridge that went to the other side of the gorge.

Found a pretty leafy pond in the woods.

We explored the creek.  Leaves in the water are always pretty.  🙂

I went back up to the trail while Jake continued to explore the creek.

But I ended up going back down because around that bend was a mini, gradual waterfall that was a lot of fun to walk up.

Here is a short video of this area.

 

Eventually we climbed out, literally – scaled a near vertical wall, and found the trail again.

Random rock tower.

At the top of the trail we saw cute chickens!

This was the view from the very top of the waterfall and a selfie. ha!  And a tunnel!

I really liked this spot.  I would go back.  Plus there were some random cool looking roads that I want to explore and see where they lead.  🙂

  1. Oh my goodness! That view looks breathtaking! I could only imagine how it would look more into fall with the leaves changing colors 😍

      Yes! I may have to make a return trip. However we have a plan to go back and do a 14 mile trail near that area, so might not get both in before it gets cold and snowy. lol

      1. Oh man! 14 mile train! Sounds like a good workout (:

      2. Tinny Time says:

        Yes! We did 10 miles and I was tired. I’ll probably be exhausted after 14! hehehe
