Grace's High Falls - Trip Details

As a large family, we find renting a home for a night much more relaxing than a hotel, and it's so nice to have a place nearby to crash after a long day of hiking! You can find nice, affordable homes on Vrbo.

Grace's High Falls is a nice stop on your day trip through Little River Canyon National Preserve. If you're driving through the canyon, you can stop at the overlook across from the falls on Canyon Rim Drive and is an easy stop for kids and dogs alike. A hike into the canyon at the base of the falls is not for the faint of heart! This is a really cool area to explore, and you may want to consider some of the nearby cabins to enjoy a relaxing weekend in the area.
