You have to hike for this one! Swissvale Falls are along the scenic Landon Trail southeast of Topeka. They fall on Camp Creek. Starting at Overbrook, Kansas, take Maple St north, which turns into S Shawnee Heights Rd. Turn west and head a little ways down E 129th St. Park on the side of the road just a bit before crossing Camp Creek, at the historic Swissvale location. The Landon Trail is a rails-to-trails trail. Hike north for a half mile or so to the old railroad bridge. From there, walk along the edge of the trees to the west until you hear the falls. There's a faint paint to them. The water is usually low enough to cross to the other side and get got photos and vantage points of Swissvale Falls. This is a real hidden waterfall gem of Kansas!
