Want to get in another hike under these gorgeous fall leaves?? Want to see a beautiful cascading waterfall??? Want to get away on a Friday morning with 4 of your new best friends???? Yea, I thought so!!

Come hike to Big Branch Falls with me!! This is a 4.5 mile roundtrip hike with opportunities to splash around in some gorgeous swimming holes if you want to brave the cold water. The trail is pretty flat and beginner friendly as long as you feel comfortable hiking this distance. There are several stream crossings so be prepared to get your feet wet and do some rock hopping. Driver needed so if you have a car that can fit five of us, you’ll get priority!

Meet at 9:45 am at the brick wall beside Echols
Arrive at trailhead by 10:30
Arrive at waterfall around 11:45
Ooh and ahh, eat lunch, splish splash
Arrive back to cars around 1:45
Back on grounds at 2:30

What to bring:
Layers! fall mornings can be chilly!
Hiking shoes that can get wet and your best rock hopping skills! (Because there are so many water crossings, I prefer to just hike in chaos or waterproof boots. taking shoes on and off gets annoying)
Lunch to eat by the falls
A water bottle (a liter should be fine)

Let me know if you have any questions!! See you all next Friday! It’ll be SO FUN
**This hike leaves from the same parking lot as the Sugar Hollow Trail to Blue Hole, which is in Google maps, but it goes in a different (prettier, IMO) direction.
