Fagan Creek 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.

From the parking lot, you'll take the Alms House Trail from the south of the parking lot down to Fagan Creek.  When you reach the creek, there will be a small cascade above the crossing.  The main fall is just below the creek crossing.

NOTE: Limestone (the stuff this mountain is primarily made out of) is very slick when wet compared to other rocks.  Be careful crossing and letting kids play in the water!

From here, you can continue on the Alms House Trail and then hang a right at the Fagan Springs Trail to see another small fall near Fagan Spring before heading back to the car or completing one of many loops available in the park for a longer trip.
