    A most excellent adventure. We did the one way hike from Black Balsam to NC 215. Easy trail with lots of places to get my paws and fur wet. Trail was in good shape. Only one big mud puddle to navigate around. Lots of four legged friends to play with along the way.

    A moderate hike but still a nice place to stretch my paws.   

    We've had a lot of rain this spring and summer.   Consequently the trail was a little muddy and slightly overgrown.  Still a nice walk to a panoramic view at the top with cell service.  For my two legged friends who don't live in these parts, cell service should never be taken for granted.  Download before you go.

    My nose must have been off on Tuesday, I couldn't find a waterfall.   Is it on a connecting trail?

    Four woofs for the view.

    Swimming hole!   Bring a towel and get your paws wet.  

    This is a must stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway.   Get there early!   The parking lot fills up early.

    Theres a fair amount of elevation change.  Fortunately there are stairs at the top, stairs in the middle and stairs at the bottom.  Lots of well maintained stairs plus a bridge and a bordwalk with an asphalt trail in between.   There's really not much of a trail to get your paws dirty.   Thanks USFS!  A great trail for older owners or owners with younger children. 

    Four rest rooms in the parking lot if you need to do a quick change into dry fur before resuming your journey.   They're pit toliets but they're clean and well maintained if you need to do your business and can't sniff and pee along the trail like I can. 

    Remember to practice safe waterfalling.  Stay at the bottom.  No climbing.  Finally, remember to always keep your owners on a leash so they don't get lost.

    Panthertown is my home and is run by a great conservation group. This is a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole. Don't be afraid to get your paws wet.

    I took a guided hike led by the conservation group. A little steep in a few spots for my over the hill owners. They just took their time and stopped to breath a lot. The rest of the group had no problems. Those young bucks. Dog friendly.

    Enjoy.

    Swimming hole! Bring a towel and plan on getting your paws wet.

    Easy path down an asphalt trail that is super short. Its steep but it's all accessed via stairs with good handrails. Take your time if you need to. There's no rush.

    No excuse not to enjoy this magnificent fall other than you couldn't get a parking space. It gets really crowded.

    One of many beautiful stops on 276 from Brevard to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    Swiming hole!!! Much more private than Graveyard Fields just up the road.

    An easy hike over a well maintained trail. Easy parking. A must stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    Despite the name, wear your fur. Otherwise there might be pointing, giggling, and shrinkage.
