Access to the Douglas Falls Trails (also known as the Carter Creek Falls Trails) is via the Mountains-to-Sea Trail (MTS). From the parking area at Graybeard Mt. Overlook (Milepost 363.4), walk the MTS south for one mile to the intersection with the Falls Trail. Follow the falls trail three miles through a mixed hardwood forest to its termination at the falls. The trail winds past a series of cascades and two virgin hemlock groves before reaching the 70-foot Douglas Creek Falls. This strenuous, but rewarding 4-mile hike (8-mile round trip) has long been a favorite.
