THIS MAP IS WRONG. It shows Little Mountain Falls Trail being located near Falls Mills, VA on Pauley Rd when it is actually in Stuart, VA in Fairy Stone State Park. DO NOT go poking around in Mud Fork looking for it!
I visited in September. The waterfall was barely a trickle, but I can see how it would be a nice sight when the creek is running higher. The trail is about half up, then half down. Demanding in a few sections, but okay otherwise. A few creek crossings may be muddy. There are some sections that are steep, but it's not too bad. Good views at the top. This trail connects with several others in the park.
