Beautiful winding roAd through forest with scenic views, weathered barns and rustic cabins.

It’s not really a “hike”, but a nice, scenic, walk to beautiful falls. Definitely worth it!

Okay, you can't call a walk of under a quarter of a mile a hike, but it was still fun. There was enough water flowing over the bluff that we got the triple falls instead of the double that we hear sometimes occurs. They are small in terms of water volume, but still nice and taller than many in the area. It was a nice cozy place, the stream was beautiful, and it's worth the steep drive down to get there which is admittedly the hardest thing about this one.

Short hike but after a good rain the falls are beautiful!

I wouldn’t actually consider this a hike. The road down to the falls is the most intense part of the journey and maneuvering it actually takes longer than the short stroll to the falls once you make it to the bottom. I personally wouldn’t drive down to the falls without a 4WD vehicle. The falls are absolutely breathtaking and worth seeing.

Very short walk. Must catch it after a good rain and you will get to see all 3 flowing very impressively. The road down to the falls is a fun journey as well...

Very short, easy hike! Falls are beautiful. We did this last in a 4 trail day. Very wise decision. It takes longer to drive down to the trail from the highway than actually do the trail

Awesome falls, easy trail, take your time on the gravel road!

Not really a hike but the falls are beautiful! A 4wd is definitely needed for the drive in. There is another easy trail just before the low water bridge that ends up on the river. We took that after seeing the falls and it was perfect with young kids.

Great view of the falls. Pretty short, but great photo opportunities.

Easy and beautiful especially in spring!

This is a road, not a trail. It's the main dirt road that takes you to the trail head for Hawksbill.

the drive was rough... it's 2 miles straight down. make sure you cool your breaks halfway down. the trail was shot buy worth the drive. the falls were awesome

the road down to the trail is pretty steep. we took a 2 wheel drive Honda pilot down to it and had no problem getting back up the road. recommend going to falls after a lot of rain. easy hike though.

One of my favourite places, the natural bridge and caves were amazing. We've done it twice and will again.

Super short and easy with beautiful falls, but go when there is water.

Trail is hard to follow. There was no water in the waterfall. Not much traffic

Short and easy trail. Not the prettiest in fall but should be fantastic in spring after a good rain.

The Falls are amazing. The trail is so short and the drive in so long, could only give it three stars.

A short but fun hike. The scenery is amazing.

It's a 3 miles drive down Camp Orr Boyscout Rd. It's steep at times and bumpy but a relatively good road. There's a small parking area. It takes about 4 minutes to get to the Triplet Falls but OMG ....breathtakingly beautiful. There has been rain so the Falls were really Flowing! It's deep enough to swim in but COLD! There is a trail that leads to the top of the bluff thats fairly easy to climb. The top of the bluff is flat and the water comes from further up Mt. Sherman.

trail was short and sweet with gorgeous falls at the end, looked like there was a trail to top of falls but we did not go up, it was a little muddy. have to drive about 3 miles down a dirt/rock road down a steep hill to get to this one. some of the road is pretty rough. overall a great trail, may go back again but in a different vehicle

Beautiful waterfall and pool . What an easy walk . Need 4x4 to get in and out of county road !

I finally got yo experience this for myself ! I was in awe

Hope you have good brakes for drive in.

Easy to get to, once you get to Camp Orr. The drive down is the hardest part. The waterfall is not even half a mile from the parking area. One of the prettiest waterfalls with the least physical effort. Absolutely worth seeing. A steeper trail will take you up to the top of the Falls.

super easy hike, pretty falls
