Hike to Debord and Emory Gap Falls in Frozen Head SP

Panther Branch Trailhead

A family friendly hike to two beautiful waterfalls, on a usually quiet trail.

The trail head begins just over the bridge and is labeled as the Panther Branch trail head. To began you will continue straight and within .6 miles of hiking you will come to the first waterfall on a branch off on the right side of the trail. This first waterfall is Debord Falls and it can be easily reached by going down the wooden stairs to the bottom where you will get an unobstructed view of the small, but very beautiful two tiered waterfall. Once you have returned to the main trail you will continue another .7 miles till you reach the spur between Panther Branch trail and the Emory Gap spur trail. At this junction make sure to take the Emory Gap trail straight, and not go over the bridge to your right. From here it is another .5 miles to the falls. Once you have reached the falls it may take a bit of rock hopping to get right up next to them but nothing dangerous. As always make sure to pack up your trash and leave the trail better than you found it.

No Falls This Time Of Year.

I'll have to go back again. When I went all the falls were dried up. Great hike though, balance of hills and beautiful scenery.
