... 8221; that bypasses two of the stream crossings on Gragg Prong, so we could keep our feet dry heading back. On the last stream crossing, we were able to rock-hop across. Margo just waded across in the water, but Willie, the rescue hunting dog, didn’t want to get his feet wet, so he actually rock-hopped across following where Sandy had stepped. I had never seen a dog rock-hop before and ...

The parking area ...

Hebron Colony Falls is an interesting waterfall - there’s no huge drop, but rather a countless number of small cascades over, under, and around massive boulders in the creek.
