Secret Falls Trail

Secret Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide

"You’re in for a real treat when you arrive at the base of Secret Falls. The scenery is stunning, and the falls seem magical, sitting in their own peaceful cove. A swimming hole at the base is pristine and perfect for the whole family to take a dip. Or you can simply sit by the side and appreciate the force of the creek as it flows on by.

The falls are nestled away, not far from the quaint little mountain town of Highlands. Resting above 4,100 feet, the aptly named town is home to charming shops and classy restaurants, yet miles of hiking trails—and dozens of waterfalls—are within easy reach, Secret Falls included."
