The Fairy Falls Trailhead is in the heart of old Spencerville, an old military training town that was abandoned during WWII. Although abandoned now, that hasn't stopped people from showing up and exploring the area, mostly by trekking along Fairy Falls Trail and following it up to Beale Falls. The trail boasts pretty scenery and natural splendor of the area, and travels through the region with a maintained grass and mulch path that stays about 2 feet wide the entire length.
Spencerville was originally founded as a mining town, and this is obvious at the trailhead where you can see an old mine with old caves. The trailhead offers a dirt parking area where the trail begins to wind north over a bridge that travels over Dry Creek. The trail continues north, passing grassy fields and under large oak trees. Along the first mile, there will continue to be remnants of old mining equipment and mines. The short hike offers a large variety of terrain, including rolling hills and fields that take up the first half of the trail, before entering into a deep forest. At this point, the trail meets back at Dry Creek and provides access to sandy beaches and small pools where you can dip your feet, picnic, or fish.
After only a short time, the trail comes up across a railing that overlooks Beale Falls, a 100-foot waterfall that descends on the rocks below. After taking in all the scenery, you and Fido can head back up the loop, still exploring the new terrain until it connects back to the parking lot.
With such an easy going hike that is surrounded by grassy hills and beautiful forests, it won't be a surprise that you and Fido will want to come back for more.
