Hike with my dog

I hiked on a Monday. I didn't see anyone else my entire hike. I hiked down to the bottom of the falls. It's very wet and rocky. It's well worth the hike to the bottom of the falls.

Very pleasant 1mile walk thru the woods to the waterfall. You can walk down to the falls and under it. We were a little early in the year as far as the Rhododendrons had not blossomed out. Enjoyable afternoon in nature.

This was very hard to find. It is not well marked, in fact, had I not read that this place also goes by the name Northrup Falls, I don't know if we ever would have found it.

Pouring down rain when we visited here, but it was really nice. It's an easy hike with a great view. We pretty much had it all to ourselves. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Great place to visit while near Big South Fork. We stopped by on the way back home. With an easy hike to the overlook, we enjoyed the beautiful rock outcroppings on the way to walk behind the gorgeous Northrup Falls.

Love this natural area. Easy access to the overlook and wonderful trail circling and going under the falls. Moderate difficulty but my 85 year old Mother made the hike.

This is one of my favorite places to go. I grew up in the area, so I have very fond memories of the falls. From the nature enthusiast go the beginning hiker this trail will not disappoint. Just be careful, it can be slippery.
