Family Friendly Though a bit much for younger kids, this is a great hike for families with older kids.

Description

On this route, you'll enjoy an outstanding waterfall and a challenging trail.

The Falls Creek Waterfall Trail is a 1.9-mile moderately trafficked, out-and-back trail located near Marietta, South Carolina that features a waterfall and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, running, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

This a great little workout, a bit much for the toddlers but okay for the pre-teen crowd. The trail starts uphill and stays that way for almost the entire trip out. There are some flat stretches mixed in and a couple stream crossings.

Being this short, the trail reaches the falls before you're too tired to enjoy the falls and they are beautiful. You can cross at the base of the falls and continue up the trail on the other side for a great picnic spot. This is a great workout with an awesome payoff!
