Although it’s beautiful, if you will go down creek just a bit you will find lower caney creek falls. Very beautiful.

Pretty boring trail but the waterfall at the end makes the hike worth it.

Nice trail with plenty of water and shade. Some spots not marked very well, a bit tough to follow at points.

Great for kids and adults short trail

On this map, it shows the trail crossing the creek about 3-3.5 miles in, but the trail turns and follows the creek instead. The creek at this point is impassible without fording. I hiked another mile or so along 206, but with no creek crossing in sight, and running out of time, I turned back after resting in a well-used rock shelter just off the trail.

Even though I didn't make it to the Needle's Eye, the scenery was top notch along this trail.

Sipsey Wilderness in general is a great trail system and adventure. Spend a few bucks beforehand and purchase a map and compass. No cell service, few roads in, do be careful. A wonderful place to see nature in some of her least touched glory.

Relatively flat, wide Trail 4x4 accessible, leads to the Sipsey River. some camping areas near the river. large pine and hardwood forest, recent controlled burn 4 to 5 feet under brush. I tried to give it three stars but five stars locked in.

beautiful short trail. Scenic walk down to cane Creek, beautiful double waterfall. approximate 20 foot waterfall at time with my visit

Not a hike but beautiful and definitely worth seeing. Went in October and we didn't see anyone.

Very Easy Hike

dcently easy trail, gravel or sand most of the way. closer to the fall some steeper hills with rocks to climb. beautiful waterfall though.

Easy hike and beautiful waterfall right off the road!

Decent trail. Gravel and sand. Not washed out too bad. All uphill on return.

Hike to Needles Eye is good and easy. Beware that wild hogs are in the area and carry a virus that is fatal to dogs, so keep them on a leash. Area around the eye is amazing with great camping sites by the creeks, especially on the backside of the eye. The marked trail on this map crosses the creek near needles eye, but we found it hugs the creek looping around to other side of needles eye. For the couple asking where needles eye is... it's up the bluff behind the big boulders where you told us the great camping sites were.

Easy walk most of the way. The last couple of hundred yards down to the falls are relatively steep and could be taxing on the return to those with breathing difficulties without stopping to rest a couple of times. A rudimentary sign on the north side of County Road 2 marks the trail head and there is ample parking space along that side of the road. We went on Labor Day weekend and there were about a dozen cars parked there. The intersecting trail that parallels the south side of Caney Creek is narrow, with some steep drop-offs, so be careful there. I suspect that after a rain, footing on this trail segment could be slippery. The water in the pool below the falls is clear and inviting, but will be too cool for some folks.Lovely woods! Watch for the bigleaf magnolia trees; you will know them when you see them. All in all, a very nice short hike!

This is a super easy hike right off the road. The waterfall is beautiful, and you can tell people have been sliding down it. There is a rope tied to the side of the waterfall. However, there is a lot of trash including a used diaper. I don't know what is wrong with people trashing up such a beautiful place. If I lived near there I would try to keep the place clean, but I am 3 hours away.

This is a beautiful waterfall you can walk behind. The hike is only strenuous at the very end. There are potential places to camp along the trail, but you would have to make your own spot.

Very pleasant hike with a refreshing destination (waterfall & rock formations). Got some good pics & the water was nice.
