Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... along Steels Creek. We had to cross the creek here, and managed to stay dry, though rock-hopping was a bit tricky. Once across, the trail headed up and joined up with the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Right after this, the trail headed down to the creek, then headed up again through a lot of poison ivy and stinging nettle. We passed through this area, trying to avoid the noxious plants, and soon came to the waterfall ...

... parking area right as we pulled up. We got all our stuff and backpacked in about a half-mile along Lost Cove Trail (#262) following Gragg Prong downstream. The campsite was just off the trail and was a really beautiful little spot, just above the creek with a small cascade nearby. After getting our tent set up, we donned our daypacks and continued along the trail about a mile to the Upper Waterfall on Gragg Prong. Although we ...

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

... from the top of a waterfall, but this one has a gradual enough slope that the view is quite nice as the water slides down the rock into the gorge below. Sandy thought it would be possible to get down to the base from here. I really wouldn’t recommend that anyone try this, although she did make it to the bottom safely by holding onto a rope. Realizing she would never be able to get back up however, I headed back to the ...

... 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 ...
