Accessed from Stone Mountain Loop Trail, this trail leads hikers a half mile along Big Sandy Creek to Middle Falls and then extends to Lower Falls.

Great hike, the lower falls can be easy to miss so make sure you pay close attention

Spur trail off the main Stone Mountain Loop trail, Lower and Middle Falls are ok, some nice cascades but not as nice as the larger falls on the Loop. Trail is about 0.9 miles out and back each way from the Loop trail and there are a couple of stream crossings. Mostly wooded and no views of Stone Mountain. We did this on an icy day with big icicles growing off the rocks, good place to take some waterfall pics.

They were small but still pretty esy trail.
