Mossy Grotto Falls
The sublimely beautiful and equally fragile Mossy Grotto Falls is a small waterfall with a 20 foot drop. This moderately difficult to access waterfall is nonetheless being overwhelmed and trampled by careless photographers, hikers and social media adventure seekers. If we don’t all work together to conserve and protect these delicate environments, we’ll soon be left with a diminished beauty and ultimately be denied access to the areas we love. Each of us needs to consider the impact we’re having on the places we most love to visit.
