Roughly a one mile hike to the first waterfall. Climb down past the cascades, and then head up Parker Branch to find the larger waterfall. There were a few small trees down on the trail, but nothing really worth mentioning. There isn't a whole lot of elevation change to deal with either, until you reach the water, then you will need to climb down a short distance.

Great short hike. Good for older kids. Off the beaten path a bit unlike most of the Sipsey Wilderness trails so we had the place to ourselves which was awesome. Worth the time just to see the bluff walls but the many picture perfect waterfalls kept us mesmerise.

The waterfall is beautiful! I would definitely do this hike again.

If you looking to do some hiking and a quiet spot this is not the place. if your looking for a place to swim and cliff jump then this is your spot.

Another user says that this Trail is difficult to find or unmarked, I disagree! Don't pass up this beautiful hike!

The waterfalls at the end was very nice, but the trail is not marked at all. There is nothing at the road saying that you're at Parker Falls Trail, and there are no blazes on the trail. Luckily we met two hikers on the trail who knew the area. They told us to keep climbing down when we got to a small creek and then keep right at the bottom of that. The cell signal in the area is very weak so you may want a GPS to help you find the trailhead. Overall very nice hike and beautiful waterfalls!

One of the prettiest places I have ever been to. So many waterfalls and cascades packed into one area.
