Waterfall on Little Fall Branch

Waterfall on Little Fall Branch, Harmon Den, North Carolina. April 3, 2012.

Betsy and I like to break up trips, whenever possible, by working in a hike, preferably to a waterfall.  We went to Asheville, North Carolina, in early April and decided to visit Waterfall on Little Branch along the way.

We had planned to visit that waterfall on our way home from Asheville back in January, but a rockslide in the mountains blocked our access to that area.  The interstate has since been reopened, so we decided to try again.  We took the interstate to an exit just over the North Carolina line, where we accessed a Forest Service road into the Harmon Den Wilderness Area.  The gravel road followed a creek for about three miles before turning off.

We found the trailhead and hiked for about half a mile until we came to the beautiful waterfall above.  We stayed for some time to enjoy the waterfall, but then we had to hike back to the car to continue our journey.

But what a great way to break up a trip.

    I love this one too! Oh how lovely it is there to just drive and visit so many falls. May i request you to post the already big photo, it is difficult for me here to enlarge. I wonder why you post the small size instead of the already big ones!
