Indian 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.

Indian Falls topTo reach Indian Falls, take the path across the road from the Azalea Cascades boardwalk parking area. Walk around the edge of the fence along the creek to the top of the falls. From there, there are trails going down either side of the falls with views of the Little River at the bottom.

If you take the trail on the left going downstream, you'll have a chance to explore the natural shelter in the rock beneath the falls.

If you decide to continue down to the trail along the river, be sure to keep a close eye on your dogs and kids as the water is very fast and dangerous in this section.
