Faery Falls & Ney Springs
The Ney Springs Canyon Trail is in fact an old dirt road. The fact that the road can still be driven on should not discourage hikers from travelling the route on foot. In truth, the road is quickly becoming a trail as it degrades more and more each year. Moreover, it would not be a pleasant or easy drive for low clearance vehicles. Now, having gotten the nitty-gritty out of the way, what does this old road offer? It enters into a densely forested canyon through which raucous Ney Springs Creek crashes over boulders and small cataracts.
