Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... creek to get the best view from the base. The waterfall is rather interesting. The water flows in two streams down a steep cliff face, then tumbles over huge moss-covered rocks, making its way into Upper Creek. Right near the base of the falls, there was a crawfish clinging to the moss along a cascade. He was not happy to have visitors and swung his claws around in displeasure.

I do wonder how that dog managed to get back up as its really steep. We hiked back along the trail and then drove out of the forest to NC-181. We drove south for a few miles to the parking area for Upper Creek Falls, our last waterfall for ...

... 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 ...
