Beautiful waterfall but a bit difficult to find after the hike through the logging road. The logging road was nice and easy, wide enough and an easy walk for about 1 mile in and 1 mile out. The trail around the waterfall was a bit cleared but still a challenge to see at times, especially as you tried to approach and see the waterfall. The trail was semi cleared, lots of debris, less traveled so lots of poison ivy along the way to watch out for. If you have allergies to poison ivy, wear long pants to avoid contact.

Difficult trail to navigate, but following the directions given earlier was able to find a path to the water fall. A pleasant adventure and a beautiful waterfall worth the trek.

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.
