Easy hike along McDowell Creek with lower and upper views of Royal Terrace Falls and Majestic Falls. Visitors to the crystal clear water of McDowell Creek will be rewarded with the beautiful vistas of Royal Terrace and Majestic Falls from the bridges and viewing decks along the hiking trails of this lush green park. The McDowell Creek Falls offer exceptional scenery with places to stop and enjoy a picnic lunch. Some fishing and wading is available in the pools below the falls. The trail itself is easy, and great for families.

Easy hike and several great waterfalls. Most have great views, but the trails could probably use some better views.

Perfect short hike with some elevation (and lots of stairs), with pretty waterfalls and beautiful old-growth forest as your payoff.
