A little difficult to find via Apple Maps but once we found the pull-off area and parked, it was amazing. Small waterfalls, nice trails and plenty of options for going off-trail as well.

A pretty little trail but compared to say anything in the smokies just ok. The trail is unusual in that it seems mostly downhill going to the tiny falls and an uphill walk coming back. There is a small water fall in the middle of...More
