“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.
