Hike to Brush Creek Falls

1 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Elyse Clark

This easily accesible 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.

Not much of a hike

It’s a great swimming hole though!

One Of My Favorites

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

Great Waterfall!

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!!
