Description

The Middle Falls on Snowbird Creek is a beautiful wide waterfall dropping 20 feet into a large pool. This waterfall has a nice flow. Large rocks located along the lower side of pool make a nice viewing spot of the falls from a warm sunny area for a number of hours during mid-day. Take a dip in the pool and relax while drying in this sunny area alongside the pool.

All-Day Hike: Plan for an all day hike to give yourself a chance to hike in and out while spending time at Middle Falls and allowing a little time for side trip to Sassafras Falls. Hike up Snowbird Creek Trail #64 - Lower Section, then continue on Middle Falls Trail or Snowbird Creek Trail #64 - Middle Section to reach falls.

Family Friendly: It is a nice, level hike along wide track up Snowbird Creek Trail #64 - Lower Section with fun places to play in the creek, continue on Snowbird Creek Trail for summertime fun with 11 stream crossings.

Dry - As a standalone hike, you go north to south, which is all uphill. At about the 2/3 point in that direction there is about a kilometer of very tough trail full of tree roots and sharp rocks.
