Dill Falls is a sixty foot waterfall on Tanasee Creek in the Nantahala National Forest near the Blue Ridge Parkway. Although it is not a long or difficult hike, this tends to be one of the more secluded hikes in the area. When this area was first settled the creek was named Tennessee Creek, but time and southern accents on the English language altered the pronunciation and eventually spelling.

Well worth the drive out there. Turn at house and go all the way back several miles until you reach a clearing. You go back at least two miles. Park car in clearing and there are two trails. One trail leads up and the other goes down. Head to the one that goes down, walk about a quarter of a mile to the waterfall. Amazing! We sat and ate lunch on one of the big rocks in the middle of the fall. If you go back to your car and head to the other trail, go about a quarter of a mile to see another part of the fall. This upper part isn't quite as large and is challenging to get to. Closely watch for a trail to the left. It is very steep to get down to where you can see it.
