Short easy trail. I honestly liked Upper Sliver Run Falls just as much.

This is definitely worth stopping and seeing. Just a very picturesque falls. There were Kids playing and having so much fun when we went. Easy and parking is along road so be careful. Hard to pull out.

HikingGreat!

I think this one is closer to 0.1 mi than 0.2. But short walk from the road. Be sure to check out the side trail on the left that goes even closer to the falls. And you can also rock hop from the other viewpoint to get some more angles.

HikingGreat!

Great very short hike to a cool waterfall. Parking off the hwy can be a bit dangerous. Waterfall itself was definitely worth the trip and I can imagine this is a great swimming hole in the summer. The trail is basically a walking path with installed gravel. Easy hike for elderly and kids alike. Quick video of our visit: https://youtu.be/FBXx7p10s1o

The cutest little falls ever! Would make for a perfect swimming hole in the summer. This is a roadside pull off that fits about 8 cars max. The trail is well maintained and it is only a 5 minute easy walk to the falls.

Limited parking but short and easy hike to a pretty waterfall. Best part is you can get in the water and swim all the way up to the falls. Not a lot of room to view if it’s crowded. Water is perfectly clear and shines from the mica. Kids loved it.

Great!

Very short and easy walk to the falls. Falls were excellent from the recent rains. The swimming hole below the falls is chilly (in September when we visited) but is shallow and sandy, perfect for wading. The rock right below the fall is a great place to feel the intensity of the water without getting soaked.

9/18/20: After the rains, so everything was high volume. if you look for my recording, you'll see I also went up to the secret fall above. The actual entrance to it is after you cross the bridge, you can keep following the gravel path right down to Silver Run, or go left off the gravel to the root trail. I found access to it from the base of Silver Run instead, which was interesting due to high water. Make sure you record your path, as coming back the trail looks different, and being overgrown with low branches seems to fork different ways. I veered off a couple times. Roots were ok as long as you went one step at a time and made sure you had a foothold. everything was soaked of course.

Open today (9/10). Looks like they threw some new gravel down on the path. Easy to get to. Very pretty.

Closed - it was all taped off. There should be an option on this app to share that information without sharing a rating, but I don't see it so I'm sharing here. my girlfriend was very dissapointed.
