Bottom Creek Gorge Trail is managed by The Nature Conservancy. The Preserve has 3 distinct trails; The Knight Trail, The Johnston Trail & The Duval Trail. In my experience I haven't been able to get reception at the trailhead (Verizon), it may be a good idea to plan your route home prior to arriving.


Editor's Note: We try hard to be accurate in our reporting but please always use multiple references before driving to a trailhead as trail amenities and conditions can always change.

The Bottom Creek Gorge and the Bottom Creek Gorge Falls are both winners for picture spots. I hope when you go it will the water will be flowing with more velocity than it did when I was there (June 2021).
