Beautiful waterfall. A little difficult to find since we didn't drive back far enough. Well worth the trip and driving to the end of the road! Very pretty!

Absolutely beautiful waterfall and you can go in the water at the bottom. I was hoping for more hiking, but it’s short. Drive in was an adventure going over 2 small streams/creeks. Another family told us at the parking site that there is another entrance...More

Helton Creek Falls are quite beautiful and can be enjoyed by the whole family. But, getting there is an adventure all in its own. From one direction, you have to ford 2 streams. First looks shallow and isn’t an issue. Second is also fairly shallow,...More

This is my second time to Helton Creek Falls. A wonderful family place to enjoy. Bring your bathing suit and towel so you can take a dip in the cool water. There are steps to navigate but it is worth it.

We love traveling to waterfalls, and this one didn’t disappoint. The falls are gorgeous. You must get in the water and let the falls rain down on your head! It was July 4th, so it was crowded, but everyone we met was friendly. I recommend...More

The falls were gorgeous, getting there was the challenge. The road is narrow, not wide enough for 2 cars to pass. There is a small parking area, but not a parking lot. We had to let passengers out and park very close to the side...More

Back road drive to parking area then an easy walk to the falls. Have both an upper and a lower viewing area but be careful because the rocks are very slippery. Recommend a walking stick.

The Drive is about 2 miles on dirt rode. Not a bad ride. The hike to the falls is 10 min. or less. I can do it no problem and I am a 74 year old male with COPD.
