Trail Description

Hen Wallow Falls is a 90 foot waterfall located about 2.1 miles into Gabes Mountain Trail from the trailhead at Cosby Entrance Road. To reach Hen Wallow Falls, follow a short, steep side trail that leads down to the base of the waterfall.

Significantly lower in elevation than adjacent trails, Gabes Mountain Trail runs through moist forest woodlands where all kinds of native trees and plants flourish.

Just to the right of Hen Wallow Falls, you'll find a small cave in the ridge.
