Only two trails away from hiking all of them. It is by far one of the best I've ever hiked at

Did 2 night trip down 206 to sipsey river trail this weekend. Missed eye of the needle on accident and did not have time to go to big tree. Even missing those the entire area was beautiful and near the end of the trip Fall Creek Falls made an already awsome trip even better.
Lots of traffic on weekend and campsites could be a small issue. Also be aware there are many obstacles here to navigate. All were manageable though with a little thought.

My most favorite place to hike in all of the US. The Sipsey is almost magical once you get off-trail :)

The Sipsey River Trail is beautiful, scenic, and get's you away from it all in a hurry! Just my kind of trail... There are beautiful waterfalls, big mossy boulders, tons of ferns, and of course, the Sipsey River on your left. The bluffs and box canyons give you plenty of opportunities for exploration. There are gorgeous camping sites scattered along the length of the trail for overnighters.
