    ... angles. Then we hiked back to the car and continued on South Toe River Road to Black Mountain Campground, parking just outside. We hiked across the vehicle bridge over the river into the campground and got on Setrock Creek Falls Trail (#197). It's a short and easy trail, maybe a quarter-mile, to the waterfall.

The trail also becomes progressively more difficult. Initially, the trail seems to continue following an old and very overgrown logging road, then becomes more of a hiking trail. It becomes ever more steep and narrow and finally near the end, heads up to a ridgeline then ...

    ... several days to spend in Boone NC with Zack and Alicia! We spent some time in Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine and loved it. Hiking, canoeing, biking on the carriage trails, eating lobster, and enjoying a sunset sail boat cruise all made for a great experience. We drove skyline drive through Shenandoah National Park in VA and then the Blue Ridge Parkway to NC. Its been such a beautiful ...
