Buttermilk Falls Rim Trail

1.0 Mile


Dogs (leashed)

The Buttermilk Falls Rim Trail is a short 1 mile one-way hike downhill from West King rd to the Buttermilk Falls parking lot.

Excellent trail to take back from the Buttermilk Falls Gorge Trail to make a 2 mile loop; otherwise, this is a 2 mile out-and-back trail.

Nothing special to see along this trail since it strays away from the gorge shortly after it starts, but you can hear the gorge rushing even from a distance.

Dogs are allowed here.
