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.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
