Hike the Swallow Falls Loop

1 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally 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 (1.25 miles) follows Muddy Creek and features a number of other falls, including Muddy Creek Falls (53 ft).

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
