Trail head starts off at the E.B.Jeffress Park overlook at milepost 271.9 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Past the bathrooms and down the trail the path takes you until you reach a series of steps, the a bridge that crosses Falls Creek which is part of the water for the Cascades waterfall. As you continue down the trail to see and step down many sets of stairs until you come to a stone staircase which leads you to more stairs downwards until you reach the cascades falls. The water fall runs from right to left and is many stories tall. Once you take your photos and head back up a few flights of stairs you then head towards the right and loop around towards the parking lot. there are many picnic benches here for lunch or a snack before or after your hike.
