This popular, short loop descends on a moderate path to a majestic 70' waterfall, which is widely touted as one of the most photogenic in the area. You'll climb steeply up the opposite ridge for a short distance, then hike a wide, smooth trail beside the stream. Many very large trees populate the forest in this area. Finish out the loop by climbing gently through a beautiful hardwood forest. The hike starts in a Blue Ridge Parkway campground, which makes a good base camp for further explorations into the area. You'll share this trail with many others during the summer, but if it's winter (and especially if the gate is closed), you'll likely have it all to yourself.
Beautiful waterfall and fairly moderate hike (it's all uphill or downhill).
Great Falls. A good hike with lots of rocks to navigate on the shorter 0.7 anti clockwise A loop to falls. The longer return 1.7 is less strenuous climbing wise but longer
Took us almost 2 hours all the way around at a moderate pace.
