Hike the Swallow Falls Loop

1.1 miles 125 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Hike along Muddy Creek for views of numerous impressive waterfalls.

This park has plenty to do—forest hiking, swimming at Herrington Manor, and camping—but the main attraction, unsurprisingly, is Swallow Falls.

The Swallow Falls Canyon Trail (1.1 miles) follows Muddy Creek and features a number of other falls, including Muddy Creek Falls (53 ft).

Nice Summer Hangout

Great swimming hole. Check this one out for a summer spot. We strung up some hammocks nearby and made a few hours out of it!

Amazing

Gorgeous scenery. Like an oasis from reality!

Fun Swimming Hole in the Summer

A friend and I ate out on the rocks and sunbathed for an hour before continuing on to photograph the falls
