I started this hike from a parking area just north of the tennis courts at Rotary Park. From the parking area there is a path that leads into the woods. Just before the brook a narrow trail appears to the right. I followed this trail to its end at a residential neighborhood. I then retraced my steps back to the path. On the opposite side of the path another trail appears just by the brook. This trail winds along the brook. The sounds of the brook trickling become more evident the further down the trail you go. The trail becomes “rooty” and rocky in areas but not difficult by any means. The trail ends at a rock formation with a small waterfall known as Diamond Falls. I then retraced my steps back to the car.
