Fall Creek National Recreation Trail #3455

Area Status: Temporarily Closed
This area is Closed

The Fall Creek Trail is designated as a National Recreation Trail. As a Hiker Only route, it follows Fall Creek for most of the route, allowing the hiker to enjoy the cool valley air and observing the mix of riparian (streamside) vegetation.

Just east of Bedrock Campground, the trail climbs up slope around a parcel of private land and then descends to Fall Creek. The route is generally level with log footbridges for crossing streams. There are many scenic views of Fall Creek and side streams.

Before reaching Bedrock Campground, Slick Creek is crossed on a bridge where there is a small cave and rock outcrops. Many good fishing, swimming, picnicking and camping spots are found along the trail.

Above the Forest Road 1828 crossing, the trail crosses Fall Creek on a 90 foot ridge. The trail ends on 1833.
