Feb 10, 2017, water was just right for crossing the stream. A few nice Hemlock trees left (they are being attacked by Adelgids). Nice rhododendrons to contrast with the unclothed white oaks, sweetgums and other hardwoods. The right side of the trail suffered from some recent burn scars. The fire did not cross the creek. The falls... lower which I believe to be Rattlesnake falls and the upper falls or Rainbow falls had a lovely flow. Great day for a hike and the trail is very easy to follow. Enjoy...
Trail is more of a horse trail. Not many views, and small rocks ....more like hiking on a gravel road. It's 3.5 miles of "up hill" so worse case it's a good work out!
