Anglin Falls

Although it’s obvious by the eroded rock formation, that water once fell forcefully off Anglin Falls, today weather conditions determine the flow of water coming down from the rocks. Located in John B. Stephenson Memorial Forest, this rich wooded ravine is open to the public for hiking, bird watching and nature studying. It is about a 3/4 mile hike, sometimes steep climbing, from the parking area to the falls. I-75 exit 62. US 25 to 1786 then left onto 1787 which turns into Hammond Fork Road. Go approximately 1 1/2 to 2 miles and turn right onto Anglin Fork Road (paved then gravel). Go .8 mile and turn left and then .2 miles to trail entrance.
