Descent

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).

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
