Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... It starts out quite easy, a continuation of the forest road, but gets progressively harder. In about a half-mile, there’s another primitive camping spot and then it starts to become more like a trail. This trail was also a bit overgrown with poison ivy and stinging nettle, but we were determined to make it to the waterfall. After a while, the trail becomes very narrow and steep as it hugs the cliff ...

... of a “high trail” that bypasses two of the stream crossings on Gragg Prong, so we could keep our feet dry heading back. On the last stream crossing, we were able to rock-hop across. Margo just waded across in the water, but Willie, the rescue hunting dog, didn’t want to get his feet wet, so he actually rock-hopped across following where Sandy had stepped.

There are several great primitive campsites along this road and not surprisingly, all ...

... time, hopped onto the steep rock and somehow managed to get down. After that, Sandy and I headed down. We got some pictures from the middle portion of the waterfall and then headed back up. I do wonder how that dog managed to get back up as its really steep. We hiked back along the trail and then drove out of the forest to NC-181. We drove south for a few miles to the parking area for Upper Creek Falls, our last waterfall for ...

... on a holiday weekend, there were several tents set up at the campsite. From here, we picked up the hiking trail that runs along the ridgeline above the creek. Along this trail I saw a guy hiking back and asked if he had come from the waterfalls. He indicated that he had and was even nice enough to leave a pile of rocks and some sticks in the shape of an arrow pointing where to get off the trail. The side trail ...
