gorgeous pair of falls (panther & angel falls). panther's awesome because you can climb the fallen log and actually sit right next to the waterfall. the trail doesn't seem to be traversed all that often, but it gives a very natural look. a little bit of the waterfall was frozen when we went - but we'll definitely have to come back in the spring when the rhododendrons are blooming, it'll be gorgeous!!

My sister and I hiked this trail with 7 children ranging in ages from 3 to 15. It was slightly challenging in some areas for the younger kids, but they all managed to complete the hike, start to finish, on their own. Panther Creek Falls is absolutely breathtaking. A few of us climbed to the top, which was also amazing.

Easy to find off Forest Road 236 and Cooper's Creek Road. About 2.5 m drive, then park at Cooper's Creek lot, walk over the bridge and look for signs at 500 yards.

Trail is all uphill going out. View at top can be restricted by trees. Probably best during winter or late fall.
