Description

This short loop starts off the Blue Ridge Parkway and partially along the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Part of the trail follows a creek until you get to the waterfall. There are several steep steps that will lead you to the bottom of the falls (down and back up). The trail then loops back to the trailhead.

Flora & Fauna

Mountain laurel, mushrooms, ferns, hardwoods, wildflowers, etc.
