About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This 90′ waterfall is located on a piece of land owned and maintained by the Tryon Garden Club.  The trail to reach the falls is about 1/4 mile long (each way), and parallels the creek the whole time.  The setting is lovely, with over 350 species of rare plants and flowers.

This is a great hike for little walkers, since there are things to see the whole way, the trail is short, and the payoff is fantastic!  There is a small pool to play in near the base of the waterfall, as well as several benches and picnic tables to rest and enjoy a snack.

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!
