Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 0.8 miles


This is a .6 mile trail, 1.1 in and out, in Hiwasse State Park. It follows along Gee Creek and ends at a fantastic waterfall. See forest, sheer rock faces, small waterfalls, and even take a swim in the many water holes. The trail also offers two established overnight campsites.

Looking for the perfect girlfriend trail? Look no further. Do not be fooled by the length of the trail. In your 1.1 mile trek in and out be prepared to see awesome small creek falls, beautiful mountain laurel, old bridge structures, huge boulders, and sheer climable rock faces. There is enough to wow the novice and hold the attention of the experienced backpacker. There are two conveniently located campsites directly off the trail for overnighters in search of a comfortable stay. or the eager fly fisher looking for a two day Brook trout haven. Perhaps the most appealing landmark is the water fall at the end of this small untouched beauty. At about twenty feet high, this waterfall is an awesome prospect for cliff jumping! Enjoy this awesome find and remember to bring the bathing suit, bug spray, and a camera! (if you have bad ankles were mids... some of the trail has 3-4 inch gravel.)

WOW, this was a great little hike, lots to see, beautiful mountain face. the falls was great as well, a great cool down from the hike, its cliff was great, not to high. we had a blast and had it to ourselves the entire time. We stayed about 2 hrs at the falls just swimming and enjoying the pool and cliff.
