Description

This is the upper portion of the longest waterfall east of the Mississippi. Crabtree Falls is actually a series of waterfalls, and each section of the lower, middle, and upper falls can be seen as you run along Crabtree Falls Trail. Upper Crabtree Falls is a particularly serene and picturesque waterfall that cascades down a large rock face.

Short Run: Run the Crabtree Falls Trail to 1.9-mile marker.

Dry - Parked at Fish Hatchery trailhead and hiked to Spy Rock, but then continued on to The Priest Shelter and set up camp, as opposed to Crabtree Falls. All trails are in great shape.
