hiking

This was a very beautiful trail! It was dry when we went on it, but the waterfall area was still very pretty. Lots to look at and huge rocks all around the whole way back to the waterfall.

If you google Ferne Clyffe waterfall and if the googlemaps or gps takes you to a dirt road then you are at wrong location. Instead search for FC State park and then keep following the picnic area directions (signs do not have arrows...one sign board has one arrow at the very end and other sign board has small font under picnic area stating go straigh ahead...it is easy to miss unless you stop and read it carefully). Once you enter picnic area there are tons of picnic tables...keep going all the way to the end until you reach cul de sac area and then you can park near that picnic area and there are 4 different trails.... Big Rocky Hollow Trail (waterfall) was decent hike unfortunately no water... second hike which we did was Hawks Cave Trail (caves)...this trail is loop and you have cross the caves and then there is a way which is not very clearly visible..

I would recommend going on this trail after a good rain.

Loved this trail. We went off track and climbed up the gorge to the top of the bluff and down the waterfall. Although short it was like a real hike rather than just a trail walk. Would totally recommend but don't stay on the wide trails scramble over the rocks.

This was a great trail, easy if you stayed on the wide path but you can go off and climb around on the rocks some too which was fun. There were many people with dogs and strollers as it was a well maintained path. At the beginning of the trail there is a picnic area where we had lunch. There are also latrines (bathrooms that don't flush), so bring your hand wipes and you'll be all set! The short distance provides a pretty waterfall, not very big when we were there but it was still worth it. We went in April and it was the perfect temperature. Have a great time!
