Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

A travel blog entry by jmpncsu on Jul 12, 2014

... 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 ...

... this waterfall before, we never had a chance to play in the water. And arriving early, we had the waterfall to ourselves, at least for a little while. We set up along the big area of exposed bedrock, changed into swimsuits, and blew up the inflatable turtle we had picked up from Walmart for just $5. Although the turtle was for children only, with a maximum weight of 40 kg, it was quite large and we all were easily able to fit on ...

The trail was easy at first, continuing along ...

... cars here as this is another very popular area with many great primitive camping spots. We hiked along Lost Cove Trail heading downstream along Gragg Prong. In about a half-mile, there was an easy creek crossing and in about a mile, there was a more difficult one that we had to wade. Fortunately, there were big rocks on the other side to sit down and dry off our feet. There was another easy creek crossing just past this one ...

... it, making photography difficult. I tried to get out into the creek below the falls to shoot from a different angle, but the higher water level and slippery rocks made that impossible. So I did the best I could and then we made the steep climb up back to the main trail and backtracked on the trail and forest road to car. Our next stop was Bard Falls. We drove a little further up FR 464 and parked at the trailhead for ...
