    Enloe Creek Falls

    ... in the park. We drove up Newfound Gap Road and turned onto Clingmans Dome Road. As we approached the peak, it got cloudier and cloudier and by the time we parked, we could barely see five feet in front of us. So much for a nice sunset. But we were already here, so we made the short hike up to the summit and climbed to the top of the tower. There were no panoramic views from up here, but it had a spooky feel ...

    Deep Creek Waterfalls

    ... level was a little low and much of it was obscured by foliage. Nonetheless, it was a pretty waterfall that doesn’t require much effort to see it. Continuing on the trail for about a half-mile, we came to a split and turned right on Indian Creek Trail. Almost immediately, there was a spur trail to the left that led down to a view of Indian Creek Falls. It’s a 20-foot cascading waterfall ...

    Snowbird Waterfalls

    ... 30 to 50 hunters. They had to move a couple of their trucks so we could get by and while passing, I noticed that the person moving the truck looked to be about 8 years old. He wasn’t old enough to drive, but he sure did know how to maneuver the truck on a narrow gravel road. Shortly after this, we arrived at the trailhead and started hiking along Big Snowbird Trail (#64). The trail follows ...

    Franklin Waterfalls

    ... 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

    ... 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 ...
