If you are heading from the parkway, drive 10 miles on U.S. 21 south and turn right on Traphill road. Drive 4.3 miles and turn right on John P. Frank Parkway. Continue 2.3 miles, entering the park and passing the parking area for Stone Mountain Falls and the Lower Trailhead Parking Lot. Continue to a bridge over Widows Creek. Cross the bridge and park in the pullout on the right side of the road.
Hiking Directions: From the pullout, take the obvious path upstream to the base of the falls.
