Hike to Falling Creek Falls

Falling Creek Falls Trailhead

Hike to a lesser-known waterfall through a meadow and floodplain forest.

The hike starts out in a meadow before heading into the forest. Continue past the junction at 0.2 miles. The boardwalk takes you through the floodplain forest.

There is a viewing platform above the falls. Head back from here, and at the trail junction turn to loop to the parking lot.

Columbia County's Little Gem

It's a nice hike to the fall, nothing strenuous at all. It's all boardwalk and they have recently added a newer section that goes off to the South. Just a pretty little patch of woods and marsh. It's best to go in the rainy season so the fall is running.
