      Enloe Creek Falls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 25, 2014

      ... mile to the falls, but requires climbing more than 100 stairs. It was quite cold this morning so a quick climb helped warm us up. The trail ends at an overlook across Mingo Creek with a view of the falls. Mingo Falls is probably over 100 feet. It doesn’t have a high water flow, but is quite beautiful nonetheless. The main flow of water was cascading down the left side of the rock face, but there were a ...

      Deep Creek Waterfalls

      Once back at the cars, we split up. Justine and the others were heading straight back to Smokemont Campground to meet the rest of our group who were coming out for the weekend. Sandy and I wanted to get some more waterfalls along the way. Leaving the Snowbird area, we made a quick stop at the boat ramp next to the Cheoah Ranger Station for some nice views of fall foliage on Lake Santeetlah. Then we returned ...

      Snowbird Waterfalls

      ... main trail, we continued on to the next creek crossing, where Big Snowbird and Middle Falls Trail (#64A) split. Both trails lead to Middle Falls, but Big Snowbird Trail has a number of creek crossings. So we opted to take the dry route and follow Middle Falls Trail. Initially, the trail is a very steep ascent up to a ridgeline above the creek, then levels off. It was about another mile to Middle Falls ...

      Franklin Waterfalls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 23, 2014

      Leaving from Rosman, we got back on US-64 West and continued past Cashiers, Highlands, Cullasaja Gorge, Franklin. About 12 miles past Franklin, we turned onto Wallace Gap Road and then onto Forest Service Road 67 towards Standing Indian Campground. We drove this forest road for several miles past the campground to the trailhead for Big Laurel Falls Trail (#29) and Timber Ridge Trail. After a fairly long drive, it was nice to get out of the cars and go for ...

      Eastatoe Falls

      ... Hollow Branch. This waterfall is smaller than the others - maybe 30 feet - but it had the best water flow. A leaning tree was right in front of the waterfall making photos challenging, but I found an angle to shoot with the tree framing the falls. Then we continued hiking up the forest road another half-mile to the last waterfall on this hike. Waterfall on Southern Tributary of Log Hollow Branch is the highest of the waterfalls, but ...
