Easy hike with great payoff. A doe crossed right in front of us on the trail, it was a beautiful thing!

Gorgeous waterfall but very crowded trail. But they have a lot of plant identification signs which were interesting to read

Did this trail with my 16 and 13yr old boys. Absolutely beautiful! Easy to find right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We took it a little further and went off the trail. About 500 ft down the waterfall. There is another trail headed down but rarely used and extremely rugged. Water was flowing great. One of the best waterfalls I've seen in NC.

Pretty short, but worth it. A good running trail when combined with the Tompkins Knob Trail. It is just a little steep on the way back.
