Panthertown Valley


We hiked the Western Loop of Panthertown Valley, which totaled 5 miles.  After that, we added an additional 1/2 mile of rugged wilderness hiking to a second waterfall.  In the video above, we are at our first stop, Schoolhouse Falls.  Tranquil, Charming and Lovely are words that come to mind.
 


After Schoolhouse Falls, we hiked up to Little Green Mountain (600 feet elevation gain), where we took in the views and picked blueberries.  We then ended our day at Greenland Creek Falls.  On our way out of Panthertown Valley, we saw the remnants of gorgeous sunset.
