Getting There

Exactly one mile before you reach the Georgia state line, and about 0.3 miles after NC 106 crosses Middle Creek, a yellow school bus stop sign will be on the right. Park on the right side of the road right at the sign (space for one-two cars).

Made it to the falls with little to no trouble. Thought there was more past the falls, however, trail was hard to follow after falls. Beautiful view and can walk right up to the water!

HikingGreat!

Great quick down and back up! My non-hiking wife didn’t even have time to fall asleep waiting in the truck. “Moderate” is pushing it only because there is one brief steep section. Otherwise, the short distance to the beautiful falls makes it “easy” by me. Blink and you’ll miss it. Follow and trust the directions very precisely. You gotta look a bit to see the trail heading down an immediate steep slope off the road.

Super short hike with a fantastic set of falls. You can hear the falls from the road. Follow the trail to the right after you walk under the power line. Falls are only 2/10 of a mile in, so it’s about a four minute hike to the falls. If you’re coming from highlands, the parking spot is just behind a school bus stop sign. The backside of the sign has a black X and an arrow painted on it. Its about 100 yards up from Lazy A road.

HikingMuddy

Super muddy trail and the elevation makes it worse. The view wasn’t worth it in my opinion.

First to Review

We only made it to the first waterfall which was well worth the short hike in. There is another waterfall further in which may be bigger but we couldn’t find the trail due to trees being down and not much trail maintenance. If you’re coming from Dilliard its just past the zip line company, then the Lazy A road, then you’ll see the backside of a caution road sign on your left. That’s were you park. Trail head is right there.
