Getting There

The trail itself is easy to follow with many green ribbons. It is an easy to moderate trail fairly narrow and the descent to the falls is just a bit tricky. The falls are very nice and worth the trip at least in the early spring.

Directions: If you are headed north on I75, turn left onto 25. If you are headed south on I75 then exit right onto 25. Turn left onto Craig Road. Once on Amos Falls road, there is a sign pointing straight ahead. Follow the sign and stay straight all the way through onto a dirt road. There will be a second sign at the trailhead. Hike follows green ribbon. Approximately 1/4 - 1/3 mile to falls.

Really wasn’t a trail at any point. We always felt like we were trespassing in private property. Decided to abort the trip and find another trail.

New directions are wrong to some extent and certainly not clear. First when getting of 75 one cannot simply state turn “left” on 25. IF you are headed north on I75 and you exit them yes you turn left. But if you are headed south on I75 and you exit you then turn right. Also you turn left in Craig road. Not right. There is no right. Once on Amos Falls road there is only one sign pointing straight ahead. Follow the sign and stay straight all the way through onto a dirt road. There will be a second sign at the trail head. The trail itself is easy to follow with many green ribbons. It is an easy to moderate trail fairly narrow and the decent to the falls is just a bit tricky. The falls are very nice and worth the trip at least in the early spring.

W/Lindsay. More trailblazing than hiking. We just turned around we didn’t have hatchets or saws with us

Trail is a bit of a challenge. It’s marked with green ribbon. Waterfall was small but it hasn’t rained in awhile. It runs into a dirty pool of water.

This trail is completely full of ticks. Very overgrown. The markers are gone at the creek entrance so we weren’t sure where to go and unfortunately had to turn back.

We tried to hike this trail today but had to turn back after a few yards in. It’s overgrown and full of ticks!

Cool falls with a nice swimming hole. short easy hike only one difficult area near small cliff face you cut around. It was wet and muddy when we went so may be easier in dry weather. Follow the signs and neon green ribbon

Tried to get the falls from the Amos Falls Rd side. No luck. The trail is not maintained and virtually dissappears to nothing. I made it to the creek and that was it.

From Amos falls road go straight until the big curve that curves to the right. In the middle of this curve there is a forestry road that is gravel. Continue down this about a mile. There will be a wide spot on your left where people park. Park there and walk on down the road to the trail head on the left. They are markers where you park but we went on down the road to the second set of markers. It is marked with paint and orange ribbon. There is not really a trail, just markers to take you down to the creek. It’s just pretty much walk down over the hill. Once you reach the creek bottom go left and follow the creek just around the bend. Go back out the way you came in. We took our three year old this way and felt completely safe. The climb back up is the hardest part but it’s not a long hike at all. Definitely one of our favorite waterfalls and we are frequent hikers.

The trail has not been maintained, so it has basically disappeared. Don’t try this route unless you bring a hatchet and spray paint to clear and mark the trail.

Attempted to do this trail on 02-22-20 and had to turn around 1.1 miles in. Zero blazes or trail markings. Old logging road at the start just not much to offer. Find another trail.

The trail started off good but after a while of walking the trail disappeared so we turned around after a couple hours

First to Review

Never made it to the waterfall. The trail was thorny and not well marked. I spoke with a larger group that was there and they didn’t find the waterfall. They said they talked to another couple who was there and they didn’t find the waterfall either. This is the second time I’ve been uncomfortable with a trail listed on AllTrail that only has one review.
