Runner Notes

Good even trail with one sloppy creek crossing.

Description

You connect with this trail on the far end of the Stone Mountain Loop Trail. It's a broad, obvious trail with good signage. In a little less than a quarter of a mile, you can turn off to your right to find Middle Falls. Be careful as you approach the falls because the trail becomes more of a challenge if you intend on getting down to the falls.

Continue on the main trail for another half mile where the trail links up with the Out and Back Trail. Cross the creek and turn right and in a short distance you'll be at Lower Falls.
