    Robert Marshall reviewed Ostin Falls

    about 1 month ago

    It doesn't seem like many people hike to these two waterfalls and that is a shame because the are so close to the more popular Big and Little Bradley Falls. Melrose Falls seems to get more traffic.

    Made the hike from Black Mountain Campground to the summit and back 30 times in the last five years. My favorite time for this hike in in the fall. This was on my bucket list. There are two decent water sources. Expect lots of roots and rocks on much of the trail. Some of the trail uses an old creek bed. Be prepared for aburpt weather changes. The trail is becoming better maintained because of those hard young dedicated workers.

    I only took this trail once and that was after a lot of heavy rainfall for a couple of weeks but this made the waterfall so nice I bushwhacked to the base. I did hike to it once and the waterfall was nothing to get excited over because it takes a lot of rainfall to make it worth the hike unless you plan to see Higgins Bald.

    I think this is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in western North Carolina. While the view from the base is really nice the view you get from the top is spectular.

    Be ready for plenty of roots and rock on this trail. There are a few outlooks but the power lines spoil some of the best views.There is a nice creek near the half way point and a few more near the four mile mark. The forestry young men and women are doing a wonderful job on trail maintenance. Having make this hike 30 times I can tell you it can be a challenge but well worth it.

    There are good descriptions of the trail, dangers and difficulty found here. If you really want to have some fun, rappel Big Bradley. Although I must admit, my son Anthony and I did it twice, it was before all of the rainfall the area has experienced.

    The hike is easy and both the lower and upper waterfall in my opinion is one of the most beautiful vin western N.C. I have never met anyone on this trail but highly recommend this hike that starts out along a old logging road to a turn around where the trailhead starts. Unfortunately all four times I have been the gate is locked but there is very little uphill walking. Just remember that on both sides of the road is private property.

    If you are physically able to up the bank with the large roots for handholds you need to visit Upper Sliver Run Falls.

    I have hiked this easy trail a few times but I always found that a lot of people wasn't aware of Little Moore Cove Fall nearby.

    30 hikes from Black Mountain Campground and back so far. I would like to thank the forest service workers for their excellent maintain of this trail. The scenery would be much better from the lookout spots if it wasn't for the power lines. You will find at least two decent water sources unless you take the side trail to Higgins Bald where you will find a creek crossing the trail. Be aware that you will go through a area where there is poison oak on both sides of the trail. Wear decent hiking shoes or boots because much of the trail will be roots and rocks.

    The trail is easy and Pearson's Falls is ok but I like Melrose and Ostin Falls much better. Be sure to see Bradley and Little Bradley Falls while you are in the area.

    I think the fees to enter the park are outrageous.

    The view from the bottom is beautiful enough. Still take the trail along the right side to the top of the falls. The view is even more spectacular. There are actually two trails to the top of the falls.
