  • Me and my family went on The Ultimate North Carolina Waterfall Trip. You should go sometime. We had a blast.
  • Drove around like idiots trying to find the trailhead. This isn’t it.
  • A nice Falls that starts from the Crabtree Falls campground. The trail is somewhat difficult due to the rocky conditions the last half of the trail. The trail is 2 miles in and back, or you can do the loop which is slightly longer. There is a nice viewing bridge and many boulders which let you scramble up closer to the bottom of the falls. Definitely worth the hike
  • As others have mentioned, this isn't the right falls. This takes you 30min out of the way. Confused the hell out of me. Crabtree Meadows Campground for the win
  • This is a long and strenuous hike but to me the falls are worth it. We always found alot of nice views along the creek for much of the way.
