Lower Aguasabon Hike

When you arrive at the parking area, you can see the falls upstream.  The hike to the Lower Aguasabon Falls starts in the parking area and follows the Casque Isles trail to the north along the river for 500m to where you can see the falls as the trail crosses over the river.  When the water is low you can make your way on rocks and sand right up to the falls along the side of the river.  The total drop on the river at this point is around 18 feet, but it’s not that high at any one point.

When you return back to the parking area be sure to explore the Terrace Bay beach with its gorgeous views of the Slate Islands.
