  • Susan Creek Falls
    The trail to Susan Creek Falls is rated easy and is actually wheelchair accessible. The scenic 50-foot waterfall plunges over moss-lined rock cliffs. During the summer it's a great place to go swimming.

  • Indian Mounds
    Just over the wooden bridge at Susan Creek Falls you can turn left and take a short half mile round trip hike up to the Indian Mounds. Beware the trail here is a bit steeper then the hike to the falls, but it isn't too bad.

so much fun and you can get really close to the waterfall.. my dog loved it too.. though make sure you are aware there is poison oak on the side of the trail so look out. Fogs will be fine but don't touch the plants your self..a f wash your dogs if they go though it.

My husband and I were at Seven Feathers for our wedding anniversary. We decided to drive to Susan Creek Falls and enjoy the waterfall before heading home. After experiencing this waterfall, we didn't want to leave! I really wish the swim hole wasn't so cold or I would have gone swimming. Very beautiful in person. I'm sure it's even better when the water level isn't low. The hike is very easy to accomplish and a very well maintained trail.

Just something quick to do. VERY short trail. I would do Fall Creek Falls trail over this one.

Nice easy hike. This trail is wheelchair accessible and very well maintained.
There are 3 viewing areas of the falls and there is also a picnic table. It'd be a nice place to relax with a snack or picnic lunch.

An easy hike to a nice waterfall. There's viewing areas, benches and a picnic table at the falls, and easy access to the creek if you have some adventurous kids. A nice Saturday afternoon.

A nice easy hike up to a beautiful waterfall. The once accessable indian mounds are now off limits, probably a good thing. Very shaded trail full of ferns and moss. Watch your step as it can be slippery.

There is a restroom at the parking lot and a picnic bench near the falls. This trail is moderate and not too difficult. There are three main areas to view the waterfall when you reach it - to the right, in front on a little bridge or to the left. The waterfall looks best in the early spring as the flow is large and beautiful. The trail is kept very nice and you are able to dip your feet in the water if you wish.
