Meigs Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Start this waterfall walk at the popular and auto-accessible Sinks, where a cataract and huge pool attract visitors. Leave the Sinks and climb over a ridge, then enter the Meigs Creek Valley. Several creek crossings later, you arrive at solitude-filled, 18-foot Meigs Creek Falls, which froths in a sheet over an angled rock slab.

our starting point—the Sinks—can be as busy as Meigs Creek Falls is quiet. It is an interesting contrast, especially in summer, when throngs of swimmers congregate at the huge swimming hole below the 12-foot Sinks waterfall. All it takes is the moderate climb out of the Little River Valley."
