Complete a short woodland hike to the 90 foot Carmac Falls!

Complete a short hike to the 90-foot Carmac Falls! Firstly, it is important to note that Carmac Falls is located on the grounds of Evins Mill resort and is therefore private property. In order to use the trails including the trail to Carmac Falls you have to phone head and order a boxed lunch for $20 (see http://www.evinsmill.com/ for more details).

From the Evins Mill parking lot, head right along the south trail following the river to your left. The length of the hike is approximately .5 miles and is mostly through woodland. After approximately .2 miles you will see Carmac Falls on your left from up above. Continue along the trail following the sign to "Falls." After .3 miles you will begin your steep descent for an additional .2 miles to the falls. Take caution here as the trail becomes quite treacherous. The owners of the mill have provided a rope rail guard to assist you in your descent. Follow this trail until you reach the falls. You may go swimming in the water but management remind you that this is "at your own risk." Due to the cost of this experience, it is likely that you will be able to enjoy the waterfall alone and without disturbance. In my opinion, this was worth the $20 alone.

Great but Private Land

This was a great time for my wife and 12 year old. Ideal to call ahead for a day pass or stay at the resort. Looked amazing!
