From Three Forks Mountain to the top of Panther Creek Falls

Nice hike, especially in the summer because you can swim at the bottom of the falls. There is also a place to camp next to the falls if you would like to.

Plenty of parking at Three Forks Parking Lot, from there it's approximately 4.33 miles to the waterfalls. It's a tough hike in with a loaded pack, not terrible, but you'll be looking forward to taking that pack off and setting up camp, when ya get there. There are plenty of spots for tent or hammock camping and water is plentiful, once you're down in the valley. Take your time and enjoy.

Hi John Deal. Not sure if you'll see this but I don't know how to send you a message. But I wanted to know what u meant by having a rope at the falls? Is that for a rope swing?! Or for holding onto on those steep ascents and descents ;)?!

Wonderful hike through the forest, with water falls and creeks scattered through out. Bring a swimsuit if you'd like to swim in the waterfall at the end. There's a big "beach" type area to have lunch and hangout by the water. There were a ton of snakes so watch your step.

Awesome View from the top of the falls! Worth the pain. This is not a easy day hike. But we took 5 girls age 10-12 and they made it. The descent to the campsites, before the falls, is hard and harder again on the return. This one is not for little kids, as the drop is forever. But the view is breathtaking. I recommend hike in, camp, hike out. Having a rope at the falls was nice. The water is so clean a pure. The place was cleaned out by the fire in 2016.
