I have been to Allegany quite a few times in the winter, but have not really explored other areas outside of what I already know. This time, along with my husband on our one year anniversary outing to Allegany, he suggested we try what looked like a small trail off of a pull off along Route 1 in the park. Located at Program Site 62, this is what we later came to find out was where Bridal Falls is located. As soon as we hit the trail, I knew this was going to be good. The forest was prime for fungus, moss, lichens, and other bryophyte friends. I just love that stuff. What's more...there was a lovely creek and a waterfall. Everyone loves waterfalls.
