Waterfall Description: The 1.75 mile loop trail that encompasses Ammons Creek Falls and the 120-foot Holcomb Creek Falls gives visitors a look at an entire waterfall system.
It is from the stream that feeds it at the top to the water flowing downstream away from the base of the falls.
The trail can be accessed at two points, one at the intersection of Hale Ridge Road (FS 7) and Overflow Road (FS 86), and the second further up Overflow Road just past a bridge. The trailhead near the bridge offers a gentler slope and easier access to the falls.
Hike Difficulty: Moderate
