The Falling Creek Falls tract is located in northwestern Columbia County near the intersection of US 41 and I-75.
Access to the Falling Creek Falls tract from Lake City:
Travel north on US 41, pass under I-10, turn right on NW Falling Creek Road; travel 1 mile. The park is on the right before crossing the creek.
Mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods, pine plantation, and scrubby flatwoods are the natural communities found on the Falling Creek Falls tract.
The tract is divided into two sections. A small creek bisects the northern section and forms the northern boundary of the southern section.
Wildlife species include gopher tortoise, wading birds, deer, squirrel, and raccoon.
The Falling Creek Park is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail west section.
Falling Creek Falls is one of the District's gems. During normal water levels the creek roars over a 10-foot waterfall and flows under Falling Creek Road through a deep ravine before going underground.
The park area is managed through a partnership with Columbia County. For park information, contact Columbia County at:
The park is a featured recreation site with picnic tables, a boardwalk to the falls, and two historic buildings. Visitors can enjoy hiking, picnicking, and wildlife viewing.
