Rolling gently across the floor of Cloudland Canyon, Sitton’s Gulch is an interior trail that you can reach via the park’s Waterfall Trail. If you’re exploring the falls in the canyon, the Sitton’s Gulch trail can extend your journey with a scenic walk that requires little extra climbing. Near the Sitton’s Gulch trailhead, hikers are greeted by twin waterfalls that gush and roar after a good rain. Beyond the falls, the path skirts the tumbling waters of Sitton Gulch Creek, and boulders along the bank make great spots to relax. At the far end of the canyon lies Sitton’s Cave, which can be explored with the assistance of a local guide. (Do not enter the cave without a guide!)
