Little Bradley Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This enjoyable hike keeps you alongside Cove Creek for most of the way, before leading you to the grand finale: Little Bradley Falls. Although it only stands at 35 feet, this waterfall is absolutely stupendous! Clean-cut ledges give you a place to sit and enjoy the strength of the water, while the dogs run and splash around on the sandy beach near the fantastic catch pool at the base of the falls. Two thumbs up!

After climbing about 20 feet up the roots, the red-blazed trail follows the creek nearly the whole way. For the first 0.3 mile you are high above the creek, but as you bypass a side trail, and stay right at the fork, you soon find yourself back down at the level of the water.

Other than a few quick climbs, the trail is smooth sailing and an easy trek. You’ll hear the occasional car passing by on Holbert Cove Road, but it’s not intrusive enough to override the sounds of the creek. Trees shade you the entire way, and at 0.5 mile you rock hop across Cove Creek."
