  • To get here you must park at Cosby Campground and take Gabes Mountain Trailhead which is across the road from the picnic area. This trail is very wide and is a moderate hike with some uphill areas...

  • Beautiful 90 foot falls surrounded by boulders and wild flowers, at least in July. The hike is a bit on the harder side due to elevation gain combined with the trail is largely rock and tree roots. Be prepared for uneven footing throughout the hike. I'd wear boots. We saw many unique mushrooms, lots of butterflies and beautiful flora at the falls and on the way. Would recommend this hike!
  • We went in the spring, water was flowing pretty decent, not a rushing high flow waterfall by any means but very pretty among the large rocks. Trail runs right into the center of the falls so you are only seeing the upper part in photos.
