This is a beautiful waterfall! Nice hike down to the falls, but can be very slippery when wet. Would definitely wear proper footwear. Hike back up is tiring & slightly difficult, but worth it to see the falls. Would definitely visit again. Scenery is awesome!!...More

The Fall Creek Falls Trail is a 0.4 mile trail that goes from the falls overlook down to the base. It is a fairly steep descent and the trail alternates between steps, dirt and rocks. Sturdy shoes are highly recommended as you will walk over...More
