“An easy, short hike to a 400 ft waterfall and Raven Cliffs.”— Matt Sloan
Family Friendly This is an easy hike for children, and they'll love playing around the falls area.
Shortly after your journey begins, you'll see a well-maintained campsite next to a great swimming hole. The trail crosses small feeder streams into Dodd Creek several times, so be prepared for spots of mud and water at times. The forest is primarily hardwood, with a few small evergreens scattered throughout. At 2 miles in, you'll begin to hear the falls, and the noise will increase until a small climb puts you at the foot of the cliffs and the cascades.
A small trail to the left of the falls takes you to the top of the cliff if you want a challenge at the mid-point. From the falls, your return journey will bring you back along the same path the brought you to the cliffs.
