Chase waterfalls with FYP! Let’s go hiking at Great Falls for beautiful views and fresh air! We will be meeting at Great Falls Visitor Center at 10am and hiking one of its trails together. The hike will be 2 hours. After the hike, join us for a post-hike afternoon lunch! If you need a ride, let us know and we will coordinate carpooling!
