Hidden Falls Tour
Continue east on Hwy 8 a short distance to Old Cty. Road A, where you’ll turn south and go approximately 2 miles to the first bridge. Carney Rapids is not a waterfall, but an area of rushing water that can be viewed from the road just to the west of the bridge.
Four Foot Falls
Just north of the bridge at Carney Rapids is a small dirt road to the east. Take this road (you can walk or drive) about 1/2 mile to a small grassy area where you can park. A short walk along a path to the south (right) takes you to the falls.
Eighteen Foot Falls, Twelve Foot Falls, Eight Foot Falls, and Horseshoe Falls are in the vicinity and within a short distance of each other. Twelve Foot Falls can be viewed from the Park at Twelve Foot Falls County Park and Eight Foot Falls can be located by walking past the Park’s campground to a short trail that leads to the falls.
The best way to find these treasures is to drive back to Hwy. 8, and continue east to Lily Lake Road. Go south on Lily Lake Road and follow the signs to Twelve Foot Falls Park. (Turn right on Twin Lake Road, then left on Twelve Foot Falls Road.) Horseshoe Falls is south of the park off of Twelve Foot Falls Road, and Eighteen Foot Falls is north of the park to the second sand road on the right. Drive about 1/2 mile on this sand road, park, and follow the path.
Eighteen Foot Falls
To view the Eighteen Foot Falls you will follow some treacherous terrain along a high cliff. Keep close tabs on children. Rocky and hilly terrain make good walking shoes a must!
Twelve Foot Falls in Twelve Foot Falls Park
Located on the Pike River, the falls are easily accessible in this lovely park, but the terrain can be difficult if you plan to hike the large rock formations. Camping and picnicking are available.
Eight Foot Falls in Twelve Foot Falls Park
Located just down the river from Twelve Foot Falls, the easiest way to reach Eight Foot Falls is to walk through the park’s campground to a short trail that leads to the Falls. The sound of the Falls can be heard pleasantly at the end of the campground, and is a wonderful “sedative” at the end of a day.
From Twelve Foot Falls Park take Twelve Foot Falls Road south of Trout Haven Road to Forest Road 510 (FR510). Take FR510 about 1/2 mile to the turnoff to the falls (watch for sign). This turnoff leads to a small parking area where a walking trail leads to the falls. The roads leading to Horseshoe Falls can be rough, particularly in bad weather.
Drive back to Hwy. 8 and continue east to Hwy. 141. From here you can turn north to visit Smalley Falls, Long Slide Falls, and Pier's Gorge, or turn south to find Dave's Falls and Bull Falls. Descriptions of these falls and where they are located follows:
