Evergreen Falls, also known as Noonday Ridge Falls, is a smaller roadside waterfall that, in and of itself, may not be worth a special trip. However, it serves as a perfect marker to help find a hidden gem of a swimming hole and Blue Hole Falls.
From Evergreen Falls, cross Brice Creek Road and walk up the road about 100 feet to find a small and unmarked trail leading down toward Brice Creek. The trail switchbacks steeply a couple of times before opening up to a small series of cascading waterfalls along the creek, where the trail seems to end. From here head downstream and cross over a large fallen tree and some huge rocks and scramble down a bit to find the secluded Blue Hole Falls.
Surrounded by vibrant moss and the sounds of crashing water, this is a perfect spot to enjoy a hot summer afternoon away from the crowds in the cool waters of the pool beneath the falls.
