On Sunday, I hiked down to both falls so that I could say that I've seen all of the big waterfalls in the park and to hike the last bit of trail there that I hadn't seen.
One thing that was nice is that once I took a left turn off of the main Stone Mountain Loop Trail, the crowds of people completely vanished. In fact, I didn't see another person the whole time I was at both waterfalls!
|This is a small cascade on the Stone Mountain Loop Trail. I almost always stop here for a while when I'm hiking that trail.|
|Wide trail leading to the two waterfalls.|
|Middle Falls. Like almost all of the waterfalls in the park, this one was more of a sloping cascade than a vertical drop.|
|At Middle Falls. It was a pain to get to the base of the falls.|
|A carpeting of blazing leaf color.|
|The Lower Falls.|
|View on the way back.|
