This trail is part of the Cedar Falls Park in Fork Shoals, SC (near Fountain Inn, SC). It is a community park which features, among other typical park activities, an area where mills and dams were located. Trail is easy to moderate through a wooded area.

Lovely location out in Country but needs a lot of clean up near the Falls.
Very muddy in several areas. The Falls are beautiful and serene. I’d love to go back and have a picnic and clean up the trash that has come down the river.

If you’re not staying in the paved path, be prepared for unmarked paths. We got turned around a couple of time but ended up back where we started so it wasn’t bad. Didn’t see the falls or milk site....must have been further down the paved path. Easy walk so it was nice for a Sunday stroll. Would be good for older people and young kids. Gave 3 stars because the unmarked trail was SUPER annoying.

Okay you do not have to use the trail to see the falls! You can drive right up too it... sad but also the trail is not marked every well you can do a circle a few times if you do not watch out. Just needs more marks and things that says you are here... had a great time but it got 2 stars for the trail is not marked well at all!

Been here multiple times to take my pup for a walk. It was a little confusing to navigate the first time, being as there were no signs or a map. The falls and river is on one side, and there is a trail that connects the other side- the park with the playground and small track. A great walking park, but not for hiking.

We didn’t do any real hiking, but we had a blast in the water and sliding down the rocks in our inner tubes!

We never came across the falls. Trails are not marked. Kids enjoyed playing on the rocks in the river. Good place to stop if you are already in the area. Nice park with playground, ball field, and volleyball.

Great park for easy hiking and viewing waterfalls. We take our pig for a walk here and love visiting City Scape Winery and Happy Cow Creamery nearby!

Heavily trafficked city park. Nicest looking spot is the nature trail entrance, but it’s so crowded you can’t enjoy anything. Parking area is ridiculous; don’t expect your car to not be hit by someone who can’t navigate small areas. If you go on hikes for nature and solitude, do yourself a favor and skip this one.

Started at the dam entrance. I walked half the nature trail and came back via the forest trail. Lots of scenic photography shots. Can't wait until the spring.

Enjoyed the park. It was really pretty and it’s great for anyone. Only negative was there seemed to be a lot of trash around the falls. A clean-up in the area was needed.

Great little park with paved and unpaved trails. We started at the playground and followed the forest trail to the waterfall and shoals area. Then we followed the outer trail along the river until it looped back to the playground area. With a few stops for photos, we walked 2.35 miles.

The North entrance to the trailhead was a little difficult to find (to the left of the playground, down the hill and past the park bench) and there are many cut through trails that you can use to shorten the trip or access the trail which made it kind of confusing on the first lap. However after that it was simple and one could easily just take off jogging and not be lost. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful. Great place to have a picnic, sit and study or just relax and listen. Trail is short enough to make multiple laps in a visit and long enough to make it interesting. Will definitely be back. Great trip for before/after work jogs.

This was a good hike for kids because it was short and sweet but there are signs posted around the water stating that you shouldn't swim due to pollution. So at the same time, not great for kids because you know most kids want to swim.

This is probably a lovely nature walk and swimming hole for families, but I wouldn't suggest it for anyone looking for a real hike. Not terrible, but a little disappointing. Looks better in the photos!

There were several paved and unpaved trails to hike on. The trails are a little confusing though because there are no signs or trail markers to guide you. The river is beautiful and it's fun to climb the rocks and take pictures. There is a little beach to hang out on, however you are not suppose to swim in the river due to pollution that can make the water toxic. There is a big playground at the front and a huge field to play games on for little kids.

Definitely a very short and very easy hike, but it was fun to do with friends. It wasn't super warm on the day we went, but we still got out feet in the water some. It doesn't recommend swimming but the waster was surprisingly very clean and I probably would have swam in it if it had been warmer. The hike is to your left past the volleyball court when you get there, and it paved a good bit of the way. Not strenuous at all, good for all ages, and nice, wide falls at the bottom and fun rivers.
