This is one of those trails where the moderate 45-minute hike along a recently constructed trail is alone worth your hiking time.
This stubby, 12-foot high waterfall on the Chauga River is among the shortest listed here. In fact, on some rivers, this broad, 100-foot-wide cascade would probably pose just a brief obstacle to whitewater paddlers. But don’t let the relative height to sway you; this is one of those cases where the moderate 45-minute hike along a recently constructed trail is alone worth your hiking time.Directions:
1.) From Westminster, drive west on US 76 for 7.5 miles to the 2nd right onto Cobbs Bridge Road.
2.) Drive 1.6 miles and turn left onto Spy Rock Road (FS 748, which is gravel).
3.) Drive 1.8 miles to FS 748-C (on the right) and park by the side of the road.
4.) Hike (east) on FS 748-C for 0.3 miles to the trail and hike .7 miles to the falls.
