    Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

    Sa**************ed back to the Wilson Creek area of Pisgah National Forest to find a couple of the more remote waterfalls in the area. I had attempted to find Waterfall on Burnthouse Branch on Memorial Day, but was unsuccessful. This time, I was heading back with Chris, who had already been, so was hoping for a more successful trip. We left the Chapel Hill area around 730 and headed west on I-40. We got off ...

    ... 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. I had never seen a dog rock-hop before and was quite ...

    ... on this holiday weekend. We stopped at the end of the road before a big jeep mound and started our hike. We were headed to the Waterfall on Burnthouse Branch, a tributary of Upper Creek. According to Kevin Adams’ book, the waterfall was a little over 2 miles from the trailhead and at the end we’d have to go down steeply to the creek and then rock-hop upstream a bit to see the waterfall. The trail was easy at first, continuing along ...

    ... great backpacking camping spots. As we approached the waterfall, the main trail split to the right and we took a left on a spur trail that leads to the falls. First we went down a steep section to the base, assisted down the final part by a rope. There were a lot of people here swimming in the water and hanging out on the rocks. Sandy and I ate lunch and then I waded into the pool to get some pictures. Not surprisingly, ...

    Blue Ridge Parkway - North Carolina

    After leaving Roanoke, VA we decided to bypass the next section of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Parkway Drive was amazing, but the winding roads, 35mph speed limit, asian tourist drivers, groups of motorcycle riders and endless push bike riders meant that we were only covering about 100 miles in a whole day of driving.   So we jumped on the I-81 and drove 200mi towards Bristol, VA and then drove down through the Cherokee National Forest passing through Tennessee briefly and ...
