Wigwams falls is a 30ft water fall that varies from a trickle to a very nice water fall depending on weather and recent rain fall. Located at milepost 34.4 of the Parkway at the Yankee Horse Overlook The legend is during the civil war, a hard-riding Union man's horse fell and had to be shot at this location.
The trial is an easy 0.2 mile, and includes a short stretch of reconstructed narrow-gauge railroad track once known as the Irish Creek Railway, along with an exhibit on logging in the area. From the parking area, head up the rock steps to the old railroad tracks and turn right.
This railway was built in 1919, completed in 1920 and was 50 miles long. The tracks were built to haul the lumber from the logging that was happening in the area prior to the parkway. Be sure to check out how the trestle over the stream was built. Follow the old tracks over a stream and soon after turn left off the tracks. There is no sign that signals the left turn and we've watched folks continue walking along the old railroad bed. Follow the well worn path to a bridge over a stream
