Create an itinerary including Fall Creek Falls
To see the highest free-falling waterfall east of the Mississippi, hike the trails of Fall Creek Falls. Nestled in an area renowned for its geological formations and scenic overlooks, this state park spans over 8,000 hectares (20,000 acres). The park's namesake waterfall plunges from a height of 78 m (256 ft), creating a large pool of crystalline water surrounded by steep rocks covered in dense vegetation. The park also contains several caves, including one with the second-largest cavern chamber in the U.S. Open year-round, the site houses a restaurant, inn, 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, and three large campgrounds. Print or download a map of the park's trails and facilities before you visit.

  • Beautiful trail to Falls. Nice, short walk to the falls. Good overlook. Not a bad walk for those with walking problems/knee trouble. Well worth the short walk from parking area to overlook!
