To reach the upper trails, go east of the Margaret Falls parking lot on Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Rd just past the gravel bank, watching for the trail stairs on the left. Or go in reverse, west of the parking lot and begin at the yellow gate. The upper trail crosses Reinecker Creek on a bridge at the top of the falls and returns back to the road. The new extended Reinecker Creek trail system starts at the post on the east side just before the bridge.
