Hiked to Dick Gaps and Catawba overlooks. Nice views of Mine 18 and the BSF river. Several nice rock formations too.

This is a fun/ moderate trail. If you decide you want on top of the falls, and actually make it, prepare to do some hardcore bushwhacking,

below is a guide of this trail, with better starting directions
