This scenic trail along Clark Creek features caves and waterfalls. Flashlights are necessary for exploring Eden Falls Cave. The trail crosses a wooden bridge over Clark Creek, passing an amphitheater to the left, and proceeds on a wide gravel surface between railroad ties. A comfortable bench, with arms and back, is provided for resting among the cedar and pine trees. Moss-covered rocks and wildflowers beautify the trail all along the way. The flowers represent many different species and attract a lot of butterflies.

The waterfall is truly amazing. I have seen quite a few waterfalls, in the Smokeys, Niagra, and this one is truly one of the best that i have seen. I highly recommend doing this easy 2 mile round trip trail. There is a cave at the top of the waterfall that we went to, and if you go to the back of it (Bring a flash light) and crawl even farther back there is suppose to be a large cavern at the end with another waterfall. It was too slippery for our hard rubber hiking boots though, bring some slip resistant shoes if you plan on doing this.

This trail had some nice scenery, but was extremely crowded. If solitude is your goal, you might have better luck in the off season or in the middle of the week. Nice caves and rock formations.
