One of those trails that you just have to see in person. It’s a long hike so do take some protein and water but well worth it! Low traffic so we enjoyed the trail to ourselves mostly.

Beautiful place!

Really peaceful beautiful place!

Loved it!

Awesome experience

Totally unexpected. I didn’t anticipate such a beautiful trail to be in the middle of this busy city. The rock formations, the elevation, everything was amazing.

Did this trail twice. First time was a mistake. I entered the horse trail, not the hiking trail. The horse trail is more than twice as long as the hiking trail. I had to turn around at one point just to make sure I got out of there before dark, because I didn't bring a lot of gear. When I finally went back and did the hiking trail, it was the hike of a lifetime. Its amazing. There are a few little campsites along the way and a very old small cemetery. One gravestone is in good condition and they apparently died in 1860. 10/10 would recommend.

I went after tons of rain, and I’m so glad I did! It was super muddy from the cemetery to the falls, so I would definitely recommend at least one trekking pole.

Once you get to the creek and see the falls and think you can’t go any further, put on some water shoes, cross the river, and keep going up.

Took my 26 pound dog and he loved it.

What a nice surprise!

My GPS clocked 8.25 miles and I went all the way to the top of the falls.

Amazing scenery, waterfalls, and people! if you love to climb there are a lot of opportunities!

Beautiful waterfalls after the earlier week rains! Easy walk down a logging road for most of the way, then a trail that opens to beautiful green cedar trees and other evergreens. Getting down to the falls could be challenging for elderly or young children but it is so worth it. Coming out is mostly uphill so take your time if your not an avid hiker.

Fun day trip! Great scenery. Listened to other reviews and climbed the ledge at the pool and found the beginning of the falls. Well worth the climb.

We love this trail. Very muddy and slippery on the last mile to the falls tough climb back out. But overall an awesome hike we plan to return when dry
My GPS. Recorded 8 miles round trip and took 6 hrs spent about an hour at the falls.

Kinlock Falls is really easy to get to and is a pretty spot. We went after it rained all week and the road muddy enough that we didn’t want to drive the car through it for fear of being stuck. But, we pulled off the road about 1/2 mile before the falls and just walked to it. It’s worth checking out.

Beautiful waterfall at the end of the trail. It’s also worth walking around above the waterfall near the stream. I’d definitely recommend it.

Easy hike to the falls, a little steep going down to the bottom of the falls. I will be going back

A really great trail. The falls are tiered! Follow the creek past parker falls and take a left at the fork. You will find a fifty foot water fall!

Right on the road. Deep water and rushing water! Worth seeing.

God out did himself with this little treasure of land and water!!!!

SO COOL. The key is to keep going once you get to the little waterfall bit and rocky pool at the end, which is like the head of the little river you follow for the middle third. With a FUN rock scramble, you can climb up to see the crashing waterfall!! Must do that!!

Otherwise, decent hike. Only “hard” because it’s muddy and rocky for that middle third, and the ascent (return hike) is pretty long. Pretty area. We went in winter and are pretty active folks.

Great hike!
You can do it!!
Take your time! Beautiful!!

It’s great for a small hike. Has a rope swing and places to jump in. If you want to stave to the waterfall, I would suggest you don’t drive a small car. There are some spots (especially after rains) that you could get stuck)

We decided to take this trail after it was recommended to us by 3 other persons. At first, I really felt like we could’ve made a better choice, as we started off on a logging road with cut down forest all around us. The first 3/4th of the trail is like this. However, after this initial disappointing start, we entered into a very, very lush forest with a fairly steep decent down to some of the most gorgeous waterfalls I’ve personally ever seen. We’ll definitely be back. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend. Absolute gem. This was certainly the pinnacle of our trip to the Bankhead/Sipsey area.

Gorgeous. Very short hike, but it is quite steep and was a little slick after a recent heavy rain.

Absolutely gorgeous waterfalls. Trail isn’t marked at all. My son and I are novice hikers. We got a little turned around on the way back and it took us a while to locate the trail. Even with all of that, I consider this a must see/do. Beautiful!

This is an easy trial and has a big payoff when the waterfall is full. This is the trial I would recommend to visitors with a short amount of time but looking for a nice waterfall hike.

A little hard to find the sink hole but it’s amazing when you get there - be careful for slippery rocks.

Great hike.

Easy walk down. When you get to the end it seems like a hard climb down but just look for the trail and it's easy from there. Our GPS put this trail at 2.3 total. Went on Christmas day not too cold. Definitely worth the walk it's a little Oasis!!

A few trees to step over. Trail was well worn but nice walk. Waterfalls we flowing very nice. Able to climb to bottom one with trekking poles and back up to bottom of first one. Worth the trip if you are in the area
