Peavine 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.

After entering the park, proceed to the parking area for Peavine Falls. The trail to the falls is about 1/2 mile and is downhill all the way. The last few hundred yards gets pretty steep as you climb down to the base of the falls, and this is the part that could be tough for small kids and dogs. The hike out and back is about 1 mile total and is well marked.
