The trail begins near a stunning 100-foot waterfall, complete with a trail leading to the small cave behind the cascade. After descending the western ridge of Monte Sano Mountain, visitors are led past viewpoints of O'Shaughnessy Point off in the distance, alongside Blue Spring Creek, and up to the trail's end at its intersection with the South Plateau Trail.
