Description

Starting at the top of this trail, it's all downhill to Douglas Falls, a 70-foot waterfall that's worth the hike. With stream crossings, steep declines, and lots of rocks, it can be tricky when wet. Beautiful forest, streams, and views that tease you through the trees, this is a fun hike. Getting down to the falls is pretty easy - coming back up from the falls is strenuous.

Access to the trail is via the MST from Craggy Gardens or the Graybeard Mountain Overlook. The falls are found about three-quarters north along the trail; the trail continues on to Big Ivy Road #74, so it may be possible to establish a shuttle.
