Easy short trail with a beautiful cascading fall. Cool water to play in. The sound of the fall is soothing. Bring water shoes and clothes you can get wet.

1 mile round trip, decently flat with some roots.
Ideal for children and pets and the reward is worth the effort.
For the best view of the falls, some work is required directly below them.
This trail will not be friendly to those who can not climb small slopes.

I love this trail! Easy hike for the kids and well worth climbing to the top for the views. Will definitely go again.

The trail heads up a gravel road through the trees with the creek below on the left and unseen most of the way. It is an easy but not very exciting hike to the falls. The waterfall is very beautiful and makes it worthwhile though. I'm sure visiting in June would greatly enhance the experience as there are Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel everywhere.
