Donut Falls

 Feature: Falls
Notes: A short hike to a local natural wonder, a creek flowing through a hole in the rock. It is difficult to get near the falls during spring because of the high water flow. If you are adventurous, follow the trail on the west to a spot overlooking the falls for a view of the hole in the rock from a different angle.
