I had a great time on this hike. I went by myself and took a lot of pictures. There is an AMAZING view just off from the falls that looks over all the trees.......absolutely breath taking.

This is a short trail loop which goes to Blue Hole, a nice swimming hole, which is to your right off the trail. Greeter Falls is up from Blue Hole and to the right on the trail. If you follow the trail past Greeter Falls...More

The hike to the bottom of the falls is a little bit strenuous for most under 6 and over 55. When you get there it is worth it. Try to go off peak time/day. It was a bit crowded.

Absolutely beautiful! I will say getting down to the falls was really a challenge! It's a short hike, but not an easy one. The descent even involves a spiral staircase on the side of the mountain at one point. I will say that I have...More
