About this Trail: The south park features three different trails, the Glen Canyon Greenway Trail (2.2 km one way), The Doe Trail (0.8 km one way – access at Brown Rd) and the Buck Trail (0.2 km one way). Along the trails you will find rustic raised wooden paths, as well as a series of bridges and stairs. You can cross over Powers Creek Falls Bridge to see the 24 metre waterfall. Many of the trails in the south park are shaded from the walls of the deep canyon. This deep canyon is a relic of high erosion caused by glacial meltwater during the end of the last ice age.
CAUTION: There are some sudden steep drop-offs.
Features: waterfall, canyon, exposed sedimentary rocks, flora & fauna
