Two waterfalls, strenuous decent and accent, swimming hole
The trails in the Mathews Arm – Overall Run area are, for the most part, horse/foot trails that were farm roads in pre-Park days. The circuit goes past two waterfalls which are spectacular after heavy rain, or when frozen in the winter. This hike will give you a good workout. You descend a long way down into the valley, and then, of course, back up again. At times the trail is “in” Overal Run, and leads to a great swimming hole near the bottom.
