Elk River Falls reviews
But be prepared for a bit of a scramble over/around boulders/trees. The sign says it was .5 miles but I feel like that was round-trip. We never found a way to make it to the very bottom of the system.... more »
Short easy hike to the falls, but can be slippery. Off the beaten path so to speak and parking is limited. Scenic location and probably spectacular during the fall. more »
Most beautiful waterfall! It is a short hike to the falls, but amazing. First the trail will take you to the upper falls, then it continues to the base of the falls. Swimming is a great option but DO NOT JUMP HERE. Great photo opportunities and could spend many hours at this location.
Great watering hole where you can cool off on a hot day. Lots of rocks and roots to climb. Trail to main falls is short (.45mile round trip), but steep. There is a moderately calm pool near the parking turn around loop. Parking is tight. There is a 2 mile nice paved road that turn to rock surface as you approach the park.
