South River Fire Rd Trail

2.0 Miles
Moderate

Camping Allowed

Waterfall

Lookout/Views

Dogs (leashed)

This trail starts at the South River Falls overlook and ends at the parking lot and is 2 miles one-way. It's a less steep trail than the out-and-back South River Falls Trail, but it's slightly longer and serves as the perfect trail to turn a South River Falls trip into a loop.

This GPS data follows the yellow blazes until this trail meets up with the AT and then we shot down the AT back to parking.

Remember to bring lots of water. The trail is ~1.5 miles from the overlook to the AT intersection and then about 0.4 miles from the intersection back to parking. This GPS data also includes a tiny portion of the South River Falls Trail too.

This trail has a waterfall at the end of it (i.e. South River Falls).
