Spray Park Trail

Spray Falls is the pinnacle of many hikers’ visit to the Park, offering up-close-and-personal views of a gorgeous waterfall towering 80 feet in height and 50 feet in width. Because the trail to the falls itself is only .25 miles, it is well worth the side trip.

If you’re looking to camp overnight you can find a picture perfect campsite, complete with a swimming hole, just up the Middle Fork trail. From the junction of the Laurelly branch and the Middle Fork, head left just a short distance up the Middle Fork trail. Here you will find a waterfall and primitive sites overlooking the falls and the river.
