A short trail along Hamilton Falls.

Shawn Holland

Features River/Creek · Swimming · Waterfall

Need to Know

Do NOT try to swim in the pool at the top of the waterfall. The current can be swift and can sweep you over the 125-foot ledge. Signs in the area warn that many people have died trying to swim in the upper pool.

Description

Start at the parking area across the street from the trail on Hamilton Falls Road and head east along the road until you come to the trail. Follow the trail for 0.16 miles to the sign marking the trail to Hamilton Falls which switches back. The trail takes you to the bottom of the falls.

Flora & Fauna

There are pines and hemlock trees.
