I was able to spot the very steep & rocky trail down to the bottom. I was a bit worried about Dexter trailing down and was worried he would (unintentionally) drag us down as he hopped down. However he and my daughter handled it like champs. If you visit Soco and decide to journey to the falls base I advised extreme carefulness. It is very steep and rocky! Be safe! Once we hit the bottom, I was stunned at the beauty. So so peaceful. From the base you can see both of the double falls. A few others began to trickle down the path so we decided to cut it short because Dexter, well lets just say he loves new friends. By this time he was a bit muddy so I knew they probably wouldn't love him back! We headed back up the slope and I will say going up was a bit tougher than going down! I hated to leave this beautiful spot but unfortunately it was time to move along. I will definitely be revisiting Soco again!
