Beautiful Hike

Went June 2015 and had a great time hiking with 5 friends. The waterfall is worth the drive and hike to get to.

The most waterfalls for the shortest distance to walk. Beautiful!!! You can hike the main trail or walk the old road (easier walking).

I grew up and currently have a farm close to Burgess Falls. The Park has 2 Falls, one is the smaller middle falls and the 2nd is the large falls that you see pictured. There's also a lot of history associated with the Falls, from the Revolutionary War to the current day. Currently, parts of the trail is closed off... More

According to the trail info the trail is moderate to difficult, but we didn't find it to be too bad. There were 12 of us ranging from 1 (she was carried) to mid 40's. We walked the trail to the biggest falls, this trail is 3/4 mile long and consists of seeing 4 falls total, each better than the last.... More

The hike to the falls was easy and very shaded and scenic. Upon arriving at the falls the view was wonderful and the viewing platform was close enough to get an up close view and feel the power of the falls. Due to the ease of the walk to the falls I highly recommend doing this for most people. The... More

What a beautiful park! The falls along the river and worth seeing!! You need to be able to "climb" a little - it's a hike back to the falls - but there is also a dirt road that takes you back to the top of the biggest falls! You just have to figure out how to get there!! I'm honestly... More

A small park with a good hiking trail that follows a fast moving creek. The first falls we witnessed was great but the larger falls was unbelievable. This is a must see if you are in this area!
