About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]
This is a moderate, 2-mile round trip trail to a beautiful secluded waterfall.  There are some technical challenges on this trail, including several stream crossings, a boulder field crossing, and navigating over/under multiple downed trees, so use caution with children.  However the payoff is so worth it!  This is a perfect hike for hot summer days, when you can wade in the pool below the falls.

There are several stream crossings along this trail, the last of which is knee-deep on adults, with no option but to wade across. Waterproof footwear is highly recommended. There is also a boulder field to cross which can be tough for younger kids. Not recommended for little walkers under 3.

This area is prone to flash flooding, so make sure to check for closures before you attempt this trail.

I joined Hike it Baby in 2014 when my son was just 2 months old.  A year later, I became an Ambassador for the Greenville, SC branch.  I love raising my kids on the trail and meeting so many like-minded families!
