Time To Complete
You could spend an afternoon or an entire weekend exploring the 25,000 acres and 35 miles of hiking trails at Fall Creek Falls.
Each season brings something special to the park, but winter may just be the best time to go, as there are fewer people, and the water is often higher; meaning the waterfalls are plunging with full force.
Camping fees apply. There are 222 different campsites in five different areas of the park, and rates range from $11-25. Permits are required for overnight backpacking on both of the Cane Creek Overnight Trails. There are no fees for day hiking.
