Hidden Falls (Camp Mac Falls)

Hidden Falls (Camp Mac Falls)

Where? Talladega National Forest. Coordinates to Bass Lane where trail head is located: 33.4842 -85.9151 <—Copy and paste that into your maps and this will take you to Bass Lane. Turn onto Bass Lane and park in front of the 7 ton bridge. The unmarked, but well-worn trail head is on the left side of the bridge.

Trail Length? This trail is less than a mile long.

How hard are we talkin’? This is a very flat trail with 3 shallow stream crossings. There is an option to cross the stream via a fallen tree, which is cool, but you don’t have to. You can walk across because it’s shallow or hop across because it’s 3 feet wide.

Can I swim here? It’s not deep enough.

Any other details? It’s a beautiful, albeit short walk to this fall, but there are some natural bluffs and cliffs along that add to it’s interest. It would be great to go after a big rain in order to get the best flow. Under normal conditions, it’s not a gusher.

Leave no trace: Please take your Monster energy drinks and Natural Light cans with you. That’s the first thing I saw when I parked.
