Description:

Dungate Falls:

A short and easy trail that is good for the whole family. The Dungate Falls are located right next to the Equity Mine Road and makes for a nice spot to stop at when out for a drive. The waterfall is best viewed in Spring when melt waters are at their peak. The waterfall dwindles in size toward the later part of the year.

Equity Falls:

The Equity Ice falls are not much to look at in the Summer. Just a trickle of water. However this small stream of water freezes over in the winter and also continues to flow. The end result is a spectacular set of ice formations. A rough snowshoe trail is ribboned with Orange Ribbon and will lead you to the falls.

In Summer there are some features along the rock ledge that are interesting to look at such as Goat trails and sleeping caves.
