Explore George W Child's Park

1.4 miles 144 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by Jake McKinney

Meander on a family friendly trial that leads to multiple overlooks and cascading waterfalls. 

Once parked, enter the trailhead and follow the trail down Dingmans Creek to the first set of falls. Try taking pictures from off the trail to the right of these falls. Continue on to the second waterfall and again step off the trail to take pictures from the right side of the waterfall, if you decide to shoot from the left side too, be aware the rocks are very slippery. Finally, you'll reach the third falls, which are viewed best from the bottom of the park looking up at the falls. IMPORTANT: While the best angles for pictures and viewing the falls come from off of the trail, be very careful as the rocks are slippery.

Pack A Picnic

Pack a picnic to eat at the base of the first falls on the rocks. The kids loved wading in the water. Older kids were swimming at the 3rd falls.
