      Enloe Creek Falls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 25, 2014

      ... thin streams of water on the right side with a delicate, stringy look. It was really beautiful. We climbed out on the rocks to get some pictures then headed back. We continued up Big Cove Road back into Great Smoky Mountains National Park and parked at the trailhead for Hyatt Ridge Trail. Our goal was Enloe Creek Falls. We tried unsuccessfully to get this waterfall two years ago. There’s no trail to the falls ...

      Deep Creek Waterfalls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 24, 2014

      ... split into two streams. After a couple of pictures, we went back to Deep Creek Trail and then turned left on Deep Creek Horse Trail. The trail was a bit steep heading up and then back down and when we were almost back to the parking lot, we turned onto Juney Whank Falls Trail and made a quick stop at the waterfall. This is another small but scenic waterfall. It was getting late in the day, so we ...

      Snowbird Waterfalls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 24, 2014

      ... we had to cross the creek where Sassafras Creek flows into Snowbird Creek and turned right at the split to stay on Big Snowbird Trail. We continued following the trail for about another mile and stopped for a brief detour down to Big Falls on Snowbird Creek. It’s not a particularly big waterfall and we couldn’t get to the base for a decent shot, so we didn’t spend a lot of time here. Back ...

      Franklin Waterfalls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 23, 2014

      ... We tried to find the nearby Mooney Falls, but didn’t have any luck finding the trailhead, so we continued on. Back at US-64, we went east for a short ways and got on Wayah Road. In about 6 miles, we turned left on Forest Service Road 388 (Boardtree Road). This road isn’t listed on the GPS and it though we were driving off road. But there was a road here and we followed it about 2 miles to the trailhead for Rufus Morgan Falls Trail (#27). ...

      Eastatoe Falls

      A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Oct 23, 2014

      ... 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 ...
