I hiked in to the falls on July 29. The first mile or so is a logging road. Then you have a sandy trek through the woods. The last bit down to the water is quite steep. The falls are lovely and there is a nice swimming hole. The parking area is quite small.

Love the waterfall! There’s a place to swim and you can go behind the water fall! You can also jump off the top of the waterfall into the water below. There’s plenty of places to sit and relax. Only thing I can say is it’s rough to get down there....especially if you have small children. You have to be extremely careful going down and up. Can’t wait to go back when my kids are a bit older!

6-25-18. Trail closed. Logging operation in progress.

Still closed 6/24/18... haven’t been able to hike it yet

I have yet to hike this trail. Went today (6-21/18) and the trail was closed to the public. I’m not sure if some of it was washed out but that’s what it looked like. Just a heads up! Gonna try again in a few weeks.

Loved the hike. I carried my 5 yo twins and it was a little challenging. We decided to stay to the right of the trail and take the long way around. Took the other route on the way back. I was a little nervous walking up the side of the hill because the trail was so close to the edge. Just made sure I had a firm grip on the twins until we made it up. It’s a simple walk for the most part. The water fall was breathtaking. We will definitely hike this trail again.

Great loop trail with the infamous Big Tree at the end. Plenty of places to camp along the way and some very gorgeous scenery.

Nice little hike. Very up and down, but not hard at all until you can hear the water where it drops down to the waterfall. So the hike out can be tough if you aren’t fit.

beautiful place. the falls are great!

I hiked this with my two boys (6 and 9) and we had a blast. The hike down to the falls was easy, back up it's steap but they ran up it most of the way. The falls were beautiful and we had a lot of fun hiking off trail around the area, mostly following the stream and skipping rocks.

Short and easy to follow. Not very scenic until you reach the falls and then it’s absolutely magnificent! After the spectacle keep hiking creek side for a bit to reach the lower falls.

Had a great hike met lots of nice people

Beautiful . We took my daughter with her month old daughter and our 3 year old and had no problems.

Easy walk in and out. Well worth the short trek.

Really enjoyed the trail, definitely get a map at a near gas station since the place is easy to get lost in, a compass would also be useful.

Busy, family fun day hike.

Length of the entire trail (there and back) is about three miles.

Nice trail that winds through a few different types of forest. Some parts have been heavily hit by pine beetles.

The trail widens out under a grove of hemlock. Very pretty with ample shade. The creek is clear with a sandy bottom. Good for wading.

The path leading down to the falls is hidden. Head to the right along the top of the cliff. It's just below the edge. Very narrow.

Once you're down there, you can walk under the falls themselves. My four girls really got a kick out of this one. :)

great hike

love this trail and waterfall.. it us beautiful and easily traveled..up hill on the way back out.. everyone should try this trail. great for beginners easy to follow

enjoyed this trail 2 old graveyards and waterfall at the bottom to the right of trail.... it was frozen when I went it was beautiful

Although it’s beautiful, if you will go down creek just a bit you will find lower caney creek falls. Very beautiful.

Great for kids and adults short trail

The first 2 miles is following an old logging or forestry road to the canyon. Fairly uninspiring except for the old cemetery along the way. it is well kept with many hand carved stones from the 1800's. Once into the canyon, there is a creek crossing to intersect with 209. if the water is very low, one may be able to step stones across, otherwise, wading will be required here. Very scenic once in the canyon.

Be sure to note that the little leg back to 201 where 209 intersects with 206 is an unmarked creek crossing. there is currently (11/09/17) a smallish log spanning the creek. thin and very wobbly. Be very careful crossing!

Relatively flat, wide Trail 4x4 accessible, leads to the Sipsey River. some camping areas near the river. large pine and hardwood forest, recent controlled burn 4 to 5 feet under brush. I tried to give it three stars but five stars locked in.

beautiful short trail. Scenic walk down to cane Creek, beautiful double waterfall. approximate 20 foot waterfall at time with my visit

dcently easy trail, gravel or sand most of the way. closer to the fall some steeper hills with rocks to climb. beautiful waterfall though.

Decent trail. Gravel and sand. Not washed out too bad. All uphill on return.

Easy walk most of the way. The last couple of hundred yards down to the falls are relatively steep and could be taxing on the return to those with breathing difficulties without stopping to rest a couple of times. A rudimentary sign on the north side of County Road 2 marks the trail head and there is ample parking space along that side of the road. We went on Labor Day weekend and there were about a dozen cars parked there. The intersecting trail that parallels the south side of Caney Creek is narrow, with some steep drop-offs, so be careful there. I suspect that after a rain, footing on this trail segment could be slippery. The water in the pool below the falls is clear and inviting, but will be too cool for some folks.Lovely woods! Watch for the bigleaf magnolia trees; you will know them when you see them. All in all, a very nice short hike!
