“A lovely hike to a scenic waterfall.”— Kristen Arendt
Family Friendly A great hike to a waterfall that is the perfect distance for younger kids getting their hiking legs under them.
The first part of the hike follows along scenic Long Creek. There are several smaller cascades and scenic side trails that lead to the creek. The woods are lovely year-round, and if you can time your visit to the rhododendron bloom or the changing fall colors in autumn, you are in for an extra treat.
You'll eventually reach a short spur trail that leads to Long Creek Falls. The double-tiered cascade is a scenic spot to sit, relax, and enjoy a snack before heading back the way you came.
