I missed the little sign and turned around before I got there thinking I was going the wrong way when the sign showed Dead End. It was just a little farther. There are three 60' waterfalls there. Picnic tables near the parking area with plenty of trees. The first waterfall, (French Hill Falls) is a very nice waterfall and it's... More

If you hike far enough you'll find a swimming area! About a mile and a half or less of a hike. Lovely area

Grimes Glen is a nice hike that isn't that difficult and doesn't require a lot of time to complete. It fits nicely into a morning or afternoon. Great for families of varying ages and abilities.

This park is in the village of Naples and can be a quick stop or a longer one if you choose. It is absolutely beautiful in the fall. The waterfall and stream is very calming to watch. You don't have to do any major hiking if you don't choose to.

Grimes Glen is a great place to go hiking with your family if you want to get out of the house. They have a great swimming pit with a nice waterfall. It is a great family place to visit!!

Happened to catch the sign for Grimes Glen on Main St in the middle of Naples. About 1/4 mile up a side street you turn right into a small parking lot. You walk over a bridge and start on a trail which eventually gets trick so you're better off just walking along the rocky creek bed. First waterfall is only... More

This is a small gorge off the beaten path, but it is very beautiful. There is a trail for a short while, but most of the walk is on the rocks through the gorge. Footing can be slippery so shoes with good traction are a must. The falls are very beautiful. The walk is not far, just slow because of... More

We were staying in Naples on vacation and just happened to stumble across this place. The path only goes part of the way then you have to cross the creek to get to the falls. I would recommend wearing water shoes. There are two separate falls both of which are beautiful. Be careful by the second falls. We did encounter... More
