  • Beautiful location to spend a Sunday morning. Offering trails for those with little experience and those that wish to lace up the boots for a day hike. The falls are just as amazing.  more »

  • This is a little longer hike to get to than the others but it is past the cutoff for where tubers can put in so it's a little more peaceful. It was a little nerve racking with young children because the trail rises steeply 75-100 feet from the creek along much of the path and our kids kept wanting to walk near the edge.
  • Beautiful falls in a great area of the park. Two other falls are nearby, and the hike is pretty easy.
  • As a child, I stared in wonder as the "grown-ups" bravely climbed to the top of Indian Creek Falls and slid down them, splashing into Indian Creek below with nary an injury. I couldn't wait to grow up and be able to join them! Now that I am grown, climbing and sliding the falls aren't allowed, but I still have just as good a time as I did as a child. You can access the falls from the Deep Creek Campground parking area. Hike north along Deep Creek, crossing a few bridges. When you reach the intersection of Deep Creek and Indian Creek, you'll make a right and reach the falls about 150 feet later.
  • Easy hike for the family.
  • Great trail
