Deep within the JC Sonny Gilbert Wildlife Management Area stands Louisiana’s tallest waterfall, a staggering 17-foot drop down a rock face surrounded by a thick hardwood forest covering the steep Sicily Island Hills.

The short Rock Falls Trail is adequately marked, although there’s not much of a trail to follow, down a hillside, then through lush woods.  The trailhead is on a gravel road about a mile or so further north.

Know Before You Go

The Hwy 8 entrance to J.C. “Sonny” Gilbert WMA is located 6 miles west of Sicily Island. The WMA has a network of all-weather gravel roads and several ATV trails that provide access to area users. 

Visitors should beware of black bears and feral hogs.
