Brush Creek Falls Trail is an easily accessible hikes leads to a beautiful 25' waterfall.

Brush Creek Falls is a beautiful 25' waterfall that spans across Brush Creek. It is accessed via a short 0.5 mile hike with minimal elevation gain.

From the parking area on Brush Creek Falls Road, take the trail to the right of the picnic shelter. This easy and relatively-flat trail through rhododendron winds 0.5 miles to a fenced overlook of the falls.

Take in the view of the falls from the fenced overlook, then continue further on the trail for about 0.05 miles. A side trail will break off to the left and bring you to the bottom of the falls for a better view of the falls.

If you want some good long exposures of the waterfalls, the falls are shaded in the morning. Once finished at the falls, take the side trail back up to the main trail, turn right, and follow the trail 0.5 miles back to your car.

Brush Creek Falls Reviews

BC falls is an easy .25 hike and the falls are beautiful. No easy access to the pool below hiking with fairly in shape older people. Walked 1.5 miles past and trails down to the river all too steep. Turned around and went back to BC Falls had lunch and called it a day. Good 3 mile hike!

Beyond Brush Creek Falls, about 3/4 miles level walking oh, you get to a second waterfall that less dramatic but located in a beautiful bend in the river and it's very peaceful and away from the crowds. Highly recommend hiking extra distance.

These falls are super accessible if you're looking for a short walk to a nice waterfall for photography.

It’s a great swimming hole though!

Simple and easy hike with pretty scenery. Quiet and nice.

What a fun waterfall, I had a great time photographing it and the hike was super short. And this place won't be nearly as populated as other nearby waterfalls. I had the place to myself on a Saturday night!!
