Basic up and back moderate trail. Ends at a good rock face where novice rock climbing is taught. It becomes a little bit of a scramble at the top, but not too bad.

Great hike. Tough finish at the base of Looking Glass.

not much of a waterfall but could be nice after a good rain. I saw the falls then took off on the trail to bottom of looking glass rock which is a nice trail with a couple switchbacks.

Slightly boring trail for people who actually like to hike great distances. The waterfall can be seen from the parking area. Homeless man was showering under the falls when I went. Little waterfall, not much to see. But still pretty!

Trail head is located off of the gravel road named Forest Road 475 in Pisgah National Forest. The trail is very nice and brings you to the base of Looking Glass Rock where many ppl rock climb.
