Parking area at end of Cold Mtn Road. Area around is marked private property so stay on the many unblazed trails. The Greenland Creek trail begins at the tower line and after a hike thru some unremarkable hardwoods there are some muddy and fun rhododendron covered trails to venture down to two waterfalls. One has about a six foot sliding rock drop and continues thru a rock sluice to a second that is equally as pretty. After that the creek runs flat within eyeshot. Well worth an hour hike in and back.
