This is a popular creekwalk route that has a short trail that takes you just short of the first waterfall. Grimes Glen made history in 1982 with the discovery of a 390 million year old fossilized tree. It is now on display in the State Education Building in Albany. Trails run along the sides of the creek in segments, interrupted by the cliffs. From the end of the trail, it's either a challenging hike along the bank or wet feet in the creek. It's easier to walk in the creek, trust me. You'll come to the first waterfall not far from where you parked. It's a steep cascading, 60+ foot waterfall. It looks tropical because of the way it falls and the plant life around it. A little further up the trail is a second waterfall. If you go on a summer day there's a deep hole just in front of the waterfall that's good for wading in. It's a lot of fun. This really is a pretty spot to visit, do it either on a hot summer day or a cold winter day when the water is frozen. Also when you go, take a plastic bag with you so you can pick up trash. This park isn't respected well, and it could use all the help you can give.

Cache is a 50mm ammo can with many prizes, a camera, and is the origin of the "Oh Father, Where Art Thou?" travel bug

What a great day for a hike in the creek. It was in the 90's this weekend, but hiking up the creek was quite pleasant. The waterfalls were spectacular! Got the cache pinpointed, and by the time I was just figuring out how to get up there my 12 year old grandson and 10 year old granddaughter yelled "found it!" Good thing I had my mountain goats with me. Just to make it official, I made the climb too, but by a little more friendly route. Traded a couple of G bills, and a few toys for the kids. Grandma and Sean (6) stayed down in the creek, but still had a great time of it. Thanks for a super adventure.

Had to find this one. Like hiking in here. It took us a while to get the location pinned down. After looking with the GPS we decided to just hunker down and do some hard looking and found it. Took nothing, left nothing.

This was a fun hike on a hot day. We put on our old sneakers and walked right up the creek. It was lots cooler in the glen. Got close to it before loosing sattellite coverage. Only had 2 above 45 degrees, and down in this glen your not going to see any lower than that. Spent about 15 minutes looking in all the wrong places before finally finding it. Rock does this make up for Huff & Puff. Logged in, took/left nothing, took pic #25 with cache camara and a bunch with our own. We must have seen 20 people walking up and down the creek. We were almost back to the car when we realized we forgot to go see the 2nd falls. A couple we met said the 2nd falls is better than the 1st and that was great. We will go back. Thanks Medicineman for a most enjoyable hide.

I will have to admit that I was sure you had me skunked, Mrs. Rocky wanted to go back to the 2nd falls for more pictures so I made one more pass with the GPS and took a compass reading that pointed out an area that that we might have missed the first 10 times we searched. I think they may have heard me yell “HUCKLE BUCKLE BEANSTALK” in downtown Naples. Thank you for showing us this beautiful place, well used by the way, and for making this among the most challenging caches I have done.
