Large pool at bottom of 25 foot falls, with rocks around. Continue up RT 72 (a total of about 10 miles from Dugannon - about 3 miles before you get to Coeburn) and turn west (left) on RT 664 (look sharp-there is no sign here). Take RT 664 about 1.2 miles and go left onto FR 700 (there is a sign for Little Stony Falls here). Go about 1.3 miles on FR 700 then go left (at sign) on FR 701. In about .8 miles on FR 701 you will see a sign for Little Stony Falls and the parking area on the left for the trail to the Falls of Little Stony. Hike down this trail (turning left) a short distance to the falls. (There is also an apparent swimming hole off this trail just after you turn left) The trail goes first over a bridge at the top of the falls then continues down rock steps to a rock platform at the bottom of the falls by the large pool. A very convenient place to enter and to swim from!
