Although this hike begins on a rather mundane gravel forest road, be patient. It leads to three fantastic waterfalls, each with its own unique characteristics. After visiting the first two falls, you’ll leave the gravel road and enjoy a fantastic hike through the forest, leading you to the base of Cove Creek Falls. As you hike up the gravel forest road, the “trail” seems quite mundane and doesn’t offer much hope. I assure you, it’s worth it. Follow FR 809 uphill, and as the road leads across Cove Creek, there’s a footbridge to the right, so you can keep your feet dry.
