As for viewing cane creek falls you have two main options. The first option is to view it from the overlook on the gorge overlook trail. This short well maintained hike is right off of the woodland trail. If you follow the woodland trail from the nature center the trail will split, if you take the path leading to the right that will take you to the gorge overlook trail with a beautiful overlook of Cane Creek Falls and the adjacent Rock House Falls.

The second option for viewing Cane Creek Falls is a bit more difficult to reach. To reach the bottom of the falls you will need to take the cable trail within fall creek falls state park. This trail is extremely steep and should only be attempted by confident and fit hikers. There are some parts where you must hold your entire body weight on the cable to descend into the gorge. If you choose to view the falls from the cable trail you will not be disappointed. No mater which way you choose to view the falls you will witness the beautiful natural wonder of water shaping a landscape.
