The trail starts across from the Cispus Environmental Learning Center. It begins in the forest along the Cispus Braille Trail. This is a circular trail with a rope going around the inside of the trail. We choose to head to the right and ended up taking the second trail that broke off to the right. (I thin the first trail that broke off to the right would have been easier to follow up to the falls today). At some point we passed a covered pavilion and some how ended up on a boot track that took us up to a forest service road. We backtracked down to the pavilion and saw where a foot bridge had been wiped out and a makeshift crossing was on the water. We crossed over and joined the main trail up to the Angel Falls Loop trail.

The trail levels out for a while through the forest.
After a while there was another fork in the trail. The trail to the right (I believe) leads back to a forest road. We continued on the trail to the left, which was the falls loop trail.
We soon realized why the loop trail had extend so far out towards the east, when we were heading back to the west. This 1/2 mile section of the trail lies at the bottom of a large rocky cliff that extends all the way back to Covell Creek Falls. This section of the trail goes up and down.
There were some sections eroded away at the base of the rocky cliff.
On the way back down, we choose to take some of the other trails that crossed our path before returning back to the trailhead.
