Hiking to Cunningham Falls

There are three trails that go to the falls, one from the campground and two from the day-use area.

There is a parking lot at the start of the trails, or, you can walk up from the main parking area.

Falls Lower Trail

The Falls Lower Trail is a half mile, crushed gravel trail which, although it has ups and downs, is a fairly easy walk through the woods.

Cliff Trail

The other trail that starts in at the same spot is the Cliff Trail.  This is a more traditional dirt trail with lots of exposed rocks.  There is a significant slope up at the beginning of the trail, then a downslope at the end.  It is also a bit longer, three-quarters of a mile instead of half a mile.

Campground Trail

The last trail starts from the campground and connects to the Cliff Trail.  It is predictably called the Campground trail.  It starts at the base of the Bear Branch Loop near the dumpsters.  From there it goes through wooded hills until it gets to the top of the Cliff trail.  It is about three-quarters of a mile from the start to the falls.
