This falls of Crane Creek is well named and it will become even more secretive over time as the vegetation continues to conceal it. The waterfall cascades down a hillside in several tiers and flows along a long, narrow granite outcrop finally ending in a deep pool. After a downhill hike of approximately 1.8 miles through a mostly hardwood forest, part of it bushwacking a short distance off the Winding Stairs Trail, you will reach Secret Falls. While at the falls you may see or hear wild turkey, ravens, warblers, buntings, thrushes, deer and possibly a shy feral hog.
