Big Bradley Waterfall Trek

Our guided Waterfall Trek starts at the breathtaking Big Bradley Falls – plunging over 120 ft into the pool below. A 30 ft rappel drops you into the Cove Creek Gorge, home to lush vegetation, huge swimming holes, waterfall jumps, and one of the largest salamanders in the world.


From the base of Bradley Falls, enjoy an amphibious hike down the gorge boulder-hopping and jumping into deep, green swimming holes –perfect for an adventurous group! Combined your Trek with the Bradley Falls 200 ft Rappel for a full-day canyoneering expedition (lunch included)!

What is a Waterfall Trek? It’s hard to describe this unique experience, even by guests who have completed it. Some call it a river playground adventure, others an “amphibious” hike, but everyone agrees that it’s an exceptional adventure. Your Trek starts with a 0.75 mile hike to the top of Bradley Falls. After a 30 ft rappel to access the base of the falls, hike down the creek bed as you encounter countless challenges including boulder hopping, waterfall jumps, and balancing on logs. Take the easy route, or follow the path of the water. But, don’t forget to look around at this extraordinary place.

A light snack and water are provided on the trip.

The Big Bradley Waterfall Trek is a high-adventure, wilderness experience, which requires active participation. This trip is not recommended for some older adults or participants with health conditions that may require immediate attention.
