Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... Creek. A short, but very steep, scramble path led down to a big rock with views of the upper portion of the waterfall. A rope was available to help us get out onto a big rock to view the waterfall. This waterfall is really cool and unique in that there are a bunch of big potholes in the rock. Swimming here, however, was not a good idea as the rocks were too steep to easily climb back out of the water. We ...

... that we had to start at the top on the far side to slide the fastest. The water was quite cold and I think everybody was a bit relieved that we could stay mostly dry sliding down. Margo, the bull mastiff, also enjoyed playing in the waterfall, running down after us as we slid down on the turtle.

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

... almost completely full with cars parked along the road as well, but we were able to find a spot and started hiking along the trail. It’s quite steep at first as it leads up to a ridgeline and then levels off when it hits the ridgeline. It’s about about a mile and a half to the waterfall and we passed Yellow Buck Trail and Raider Camp Trail on the way. Towards the end, the trail follows Harper Creek upstream, ...

... Falls. There were a lot of cars here as this is one of the most popular hiking, camping, and swimming areas. We followed Hunt Fish Falls Trail (263) for about a mile down to Lost Cove Trail (262) right above the waterfall and got out on the exposed bedrock. There were a lot of people here swimming, sunbathing, and enjoying the falls. All of the primitive campsites around here were full as well. Hunt Fish Falls is ...
