  • 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.
  • Lovely, manageable hike
  • It was a wonderful hike!
