This trail takes you down to several areas where you can camp and hike to Presbyterian Falls on the Mountain Fork River. The trail does not have many hazards till you reach the end. The end is tight with a small water crossing and a muddy portion. The ending campsite is secluded in the trees near the river.

Easy trail from start to almost the end. The end of the trail has both mud and a water feature that can pose difficult under the right conditions. During periods of heavy rainfall proceed with caution over the mud and water features as these are deceptively deep.

The first 3/4 of the trail are pretty easy going. As you get to the end it gets narrow but still passable. There are some mud holes near the end but they aren’t bad I never needed 4wd. Once I got to the very end of the trail it was just a short 1/4 mile hike to see the waterfall. Be warned you will have to descend and climb back out of a pretty steep embankment to get down to the rivers edge to view the waterfall. It looks intimidating but is very doable for a reasonably fit person

Access Description

There are two ways to reach the start of this trail. You can take forest road 50200 from Hwy 259 to the north of this trail or you can come in on Rereg Road - D4720 and turn on to the trail. 50200 is much more scenic and is also dirt while Rereg Road is paved.
