This short hike takes visitors to a small but popular waterfall. This trail lies almost entirely inside the congressionally designated Gee Creek Wilderness. Trail length to the falls is just over 1 mile from the trailhead, making it a 2 mile roundtrip hike.
When you get to the falls(at one mile) you can cross the river and continue to follow the trail along the creek. If you count the number of times you cross the river (including the first crossing on the bridge), you will cross the stream eight times before the trail will disappear and you will have to turn back. This is a beautiful hike that follows the creek the entire way. You will see huge boulders and lush vegetation along the way. The concrete structures you see along the way were at one time used for mining quartz in the area.
