“From Twelve Foot Falls Park take Twelve Foot Falls Road south of Trout Haven Road to Forest Road 510 (FR510). Take FR510 about 1/2 mile to the turnoff to the falls (watch for sign). This turnoff leads to a small parking area where a walking trail leads to the falls. The roads leading to Horseshoe Falls can be rough, particularly in bad weather. Drive back to Hwy. 8 and continue east to Hwy. 141. From here you can turn north to visit Smalley Falls, Long Slide Falls, and Pier's Gorge, or turn south to find Dave's Falls and Bull Falls. ”
