Glen Falls

Glen Falls is located 2.6 miles south of Highlands. To reach Glen Falls, take Highway 106 south from Highlands and travel 1.6 miles where you will see a sign directing you to turn left. As you turn left, make the right job and head down the gravel road for 1 mile. The road will dead end into the Glen Falls parking area. From here, you can either take the Glen Falls trail or the Chinquapin Mountain Trail.

Glen Falls features a series of beautiful cascades. there are 3 major cascades and several smaller cascades, all of which you can access from the zig-zagging trail. Pay attention which turn on the trail you make as there are several shoot offs from the main trail. From top to bottom, the trail is 1 mile long and descends 700 ft. The hike in is fairly easy since you are dropping down but coming out can be a lot more strenuous.

Glen Falls is located in a forest of hardwoods & pines which help keep the trails nicely shaded from the hot summer sun. From most points on the trail, you can hear the falls which makes for a wonderful hike in and out.
