Big Griesbach Loop

hiking, medium

The big Griesbach loop follows the short Griesbach loop all the way to the second suspension bridge, but this time you make a right instead of a left. After a few minutes the trail leads past a roaring waterfall. In the ensuing section of the trail the water flows quietly, and there is a stillness in the air. After hiking up and out of the gorge, you will reach a second waterfall.  The trail then continues into a wide valley with sand bars where you can relax and enjoy the scenery. Continue past the sand bars further into valley. At a junction, turn left and continue across a bridge to the Griesbachkanzel vista point. Follow the historic lumberjack trail through a pristine forest back to the parking lot.
