Length: 0.6 mi • Est. 20 m
This is probably the shortest hike with the greatest reward as you will hike a total of a one mile in, around and out. The views are absolutely stunning!!! After a short walk there are two different areas that you walk out onto a large rock face with views of Grandfather Mountain and surrounding areas. This is a best kept secret!Show more

Short hike to one of the popular waterfalls/swimming holes in the Wilson Creek area. Waterfall with two nice swimming holes. The bottom swimming hole is larger than an Olympic size pool, so you can really swim. Both pools offer swimming, wading, diving, or simply floating. The pools are very deep and the water is cool and refreshing. The upper part of the falls cascades into a deep pool, and it is not uncommon to see people slide, jump, or dive off into this pool. This is a popular place in the summer so expect to see people here on the weekends or holidays. The campsite at the end of this trail is hidden away from the crowds, and is above the falls. This trail shares part of the MST so keep to the orange blazes. There is a rope down a steep rock face to the base of the fallsShow more

Beautiful woodland walk and awesome 200+ foot waterfall. This is the quickest and easiest way to access South Harper Creek Falls. The trail will begin across from the small parking area on the right. Look for the orange blazes. Walk along the mostly level to descending trail for approximately 1.1 miles to Harper Creek. Stay to the left at any trail junctions you encounter along this part of the trail. Once at the creek, cross and look for the natural stone stairs leading away from the creek. If you look upstream you will see a small unnamed falls. At this point you wil no longer follow the orange blazes. The trail will follow switchbacks up the mountain. It might be hard to find in areas, but follow what looks like the most heavily traveled route. When you get to the top of the ridge look for a heavily rutted and used trail going from left to right. Always stay left and you will come to an overlook with awesome views of the falls. WATERFALLS ARE DANGEROUS! PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM WET AND SLIPPERY ROCKS.Show more

Wooded covered trail, waterfalls and nice open areas for camping This trail starts off on a well marked trail off of SR58. For the most part it is down hill until intersecting with the Mountain-to-Sea Trail which heads north. This is a nice gradual uphill climb to SR464. Go left and take the second trail south to reconnect with the North Harper Creek Trail.Show more
