How to get there
Little Davis Creek is located downstream of Felker’s Falls but reaching it from Felker’s Falls is difficult. It is easier to take King St. East exit off the Red Hill Valley Parkway and follow King St. to Quigley Rd. Turn right onto Quigley Rd. and follow it to the end. Walk past the end of Quigley Rd. onto parkland, turn right and Little Davis Falls is there.
