When my husband and I approached the start of the trail that takes visitors to Otter Falls, we encountered a mother and her daughter at the end of their hike, huffing and out of breath.
“Have you been before?” the mother asked. “No,” we answered. “Its definitely worth it!” she assured us.
Given that the trail is under a mile long, her reassurances seemed strange, until we realized how steep the drop in elevation to reach the falls actually was. She was right though, it was worth it.
