Create an itinerary including Ramsey Cascades
Embark on the rather challenging hike to Ramsey Cascades, where water rushes over a set of boulders in a picturesque veil. Don good hiking shoes and clothes, bring lots of water and snacks, and follow the narrow stream up towards the top. On the last sequence of the hike you'll have to cross two log bridges, so exercise caution, especially if there are kids with you. Take a dip in the pool at the bottom of the cascades, or simply soak in the pristine forest setting.
