... in Morganton and headed north on NC-181. In about 17 miles, we turned left on Forest Road 228 and proceeded to the end. Although this road seemed pretty remote, there were a lot of people camping at the spots near the end. After parking, we got our stuff ready and started hiking the Steels Creek Trail (#237). The trail was a continuation of the road for about a quarter-mile to a nice swimming hole below ...

... at a couple of smaller cascades between the upper and lower waterfalls. At one spot, there was an area of wet rocks where a large number of Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies had congregated. I guess they were drinking from the wet rock or perhaps there was some food there that I couldn’t see. About a quarter-mile from the Upper Waterfall, we came out at the top of the Lower Waterfall. Usually, you can’t ...

... over Gragg Prong. By this time, we had run out of water and it was getting late. We were both exhausted, so decided to come back tomorrow to get these waterfalls. We made our way back to the cars, stopping for a couple more pictures of Hunt Fish Falls with fewer people around and better light conditions. Then, the hike back up to the parking area. We decided to get Chinese takeout and have it for dinner back at the ...
