"A popular local spot for those heading to Table Rock State Park or Caesars Head State Park, the waterfalls here are the main draw. There are three waterfalls, with the first two accessible to just about everyone from the roadside. With no signage, most visitors don’t even realize that they can take the moderate 1-mile loop trail and see the remains of a house and another taller waterfall. During the warmer months, on weekends, the falls can be found by looking for the hotboiled-peanut vendor." Read more
"Offering three wonderful waterfalls over the course of a mile-long trail, this unsuspecting roadside park really packs a punch. Make sure you keep the dogs on lead, since the trailhead is near the main road. You’ll pass the Lower and Middle Falls before the trail leads up to the remnants of an old picnic shelter. Beyond the charred chimney ruins, you’ll be led on a pleasant uphill journey to Upper Falls, where large boulders strewn about add character. The park is part of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area, and there are no facilities or amenities onsite, so come prepared." Read more
