DO IT: Hiking - Waterfalls Trail

Waterfalls Trail - Cloudland Canyon State Park

Visitors should note that this trail is strenuous and is not suitable for everyone. Hikers who choose the challenge of the Waterfalls Trail are rewarded with the site of Cherokee Falls after ½-mile and then Hemlock Falls about ½-mile further down the canyon. The flow level of the water over the falls varies throughout the year, but in general, winter and early spring offer the greatest flow and most impressive falls.

The steep hike down to Hemlock Falls involves 600 metal grated stairs one way. Hikers with pets should be aware that although dogs on leashes are allowed on all park trails, they sometimes have difficulty navigating the numerous metal grated stair steps.
