Trail Description

This is also considered the Auger Falls East Trail, but essentially is a snowmobile trail. Starting from Old Route 8 cross the bridge and take an immediate right and cross a small wooded bridge over a decent sized creek. From here the trail is very wide and has several small rolling hills. Be sure to say on the snowmobile trail for ease of access through the area, there are a few side trails and old roads that can be a bit confusing, but the snowmobile trail is well marked. Auger Flats is initially on your right, which is a slow moving current area of the river.

About half way through the trip you will come to Auger Falls on your right, be very careful here the gorge and ledges are very steep and slippery. Not far past here the trail moves away from the river and eventually comes out at the eastern trailhead where your second car is parked. If you only have one car, you may prefer to just approach Auger Falls or Auger Flats from one side or the other.
