Both Deer Skull Falls and Eagle Falls can be accessed by following the Little
Ugly Branch west from where it joins the Sipsey at about the midpoint of trail
209 - Sipsey River. You will need to cross
the Sipsey to get there.
Walk on either side of Little Ugly for about a mile to where it forks. The
left fork takes you on a somewhat difficult walk to Eagle Falls. The banks are
steep, so much so that numerous stream crossings are required just to find some
place to walk.
Eagle Falls could also be accessed from trail
202 - Randolph, perhaps in conjunction with a
hike to Deer Skull Falls. The shortest route would be to park on Highway 60
and just bushwhack your way north. You will want a decent map/GPS for this.
For the club's experience, you may wish to see the
Hiking Trip Report from April 2008.
look in the lower center section or search for Eagle Falls.
