After continuing more down the loop, once you reach the halfway point, you will find the Tropical Terrance Ruins, the ruins of a mansion that burned down in 1982. The foundation of the mansion is still there along with the remains of many fireplaces, ovens, and fountains. This house seems to have been quite the party house in its day. The most interesting part about this to me is that you could still tell where the shower was in the bathroom of the house. The tile and drain were still standing strong. Next to the house remains was a beautiful waterfall, perfectly placed with a path right next to it to follow the water upstream to the top of the falls.
My only complaint here is that we couldn’t get out closer towards the water, rocks, and falls due to them being fenced off. That’s the downside to being on high-trafficked and well kept-up trails. They have stricter guidelines with that stuff. I’ve been climbing on much more dangerous waterfalls in the past, but this one was off limits.
