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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
