These falls are accessible by finding your way to the Black Mountain Campground. Park before you get to the bridge on your left. You'll see 3 billboards at the parking area. The trail behind the billboards goes to the River Loop Trail and the Green Ridge to the Green Knob Firetower. Don't take those trails. Walk across the road and across the bridge over the river into the campground. Hang a left to enter the trail systems. You'll see three trail signs. Don't get on the Mt. Mitchell trail. Get on the Briar Bottom Trail. After .10 of a mile you'll take a right a bit parallel to the river and then to the falls.
