Accessed from Stone Mountain Loop Trail, this trail leads hikers a half mile along Big Sandy Creek to Middle Falls and then extends to Lower Falls.

Didn't go to Middle Falls, but made it to the Upper Falls and the Lower Falls. I liked the privacy of the Lower Falls.

A wonderful hike alongside several soothing streams that lead to 3 waterfalls of various scale. The climb back up was a bit exhausting, but well worth it.

Spur trail off the main Stone Mountain Loop trail, Lower and Middle Falls are ok, some nice cascades but not as nice as the larger falls on the Loop. Trail is about 0.9 miles out and back each way from the Loop trail and there are a couple of stream crossings. Mostly wooded and no views of Stone Mountain. We did this on an icy day with big icicles growing off the rocks, good place to take some waterfall pics.

They were small but still pretty esy trail.
