Hike Hamilton Falls

6.8 miles 889 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Hamilton Falls is a year-round wonder.

The hike to Hamilton Falls is an enjoyable 6.8 miles roundtrip voyage through gorgeous forest scenery alongside a babbling brook. Be sure to visit the upper and lower falls! This trail is kid and dog friendly, so why not bring both?! If you are visiting the falls in the summer, bring a towel and a swimsuit to enjoy the swimming hole at the base of the falls. 

We recommend taking the trail to the overlook in addition to visiting the falls to make this day trip even more picturesque.

Beautiful but for the tourist

Absolutely stunning falls but a local/tourist hang out spot. There is a cliff jump and water slide on the top but be very careful and mindful of current since it is possible to go over the edge if the water level is high.
