This is an excellent hike for all members of the family. After approximately 1 mile on the Foothills Trail you will see a clearly marked sign directing you to Hidden Falls. Yellow blazes on the trees along the trail provide direction, as you wind along the hillside. As you walk, you will be entertained by the sounds of Tamassee Creek, which is hidden by dense underbrush. Hidden Falls flows over a series of granite ledges and drops 60 feet. It is best viewed after a rain. Several rock benches provide a place to sit and enjoy the galax, rhododendron, and ferns as you dangle your feet in the creek.
