Margarette Falls is my favorite waterfall hike near home. The boys said they like Sill Branch Falls better, but only, “just a little bit.” This one is about 1.7 mi longer than Sill Branch with more rocky and challenging terrain in a few spots. Margarette Falls trail follows a beautiful creek, giving you gorgeous scenery the whole way. The few challenging areas are not bad if you are prepared, (read: appropriate footwear). This was definitely doable, but a more challenging hike when we had a little one under 5 years old who was no longer riding in a hiking backpack. The first time we did this trail, the boys had just turned 4, 6, and 7. Depending on how high the creek is at the crossing, it would be helpful to have 1 adult per child under 5. We usually see hikers of all different ages when we go.
