This trail features three major waterfalls, Compton’s Double Falls, Amber Falls, and Owl Falls.  All are located along the same trail / creek, but you will need to follow the path down around Compton’s Double falls to the bottom and then follow creek down to find Owl falls. 

The road here is rough but passable with a taller 2-wheel drive. Come from the North past Hawksbill Crag. Must have an off-road vehicle if coming from south past the buffalo river crossing. This trail is not well marked so be sure to have a map on your phone. Also wear pants and bug spray as it’s not a well-traveled trail.

This whole area is beautiful, the Amber Falls are reported to be named after photographer Tim Ernst’s daughter.  The trailhead is located off of Cave Mountain Road just past the trailhead for Whitaker Point.  Dogs are allowed on trail.
