Helton Creek Falls Trail Report:

Helton Creek Falls is easily accessible by car from Vogel State Park and Walasi-Yi/Neels Gap. The trail is nicely maintained, descending into a valley and up toward the upper falls (where it terminates in a boardwalk viewing platform). There are stairs leading down into the pool beneath the lower falls — I imagine in summer it’s a popular swimming place! But not in January. The falls are lovely and the short trail was perfect for a family with young/new hikers.
