“Great little hike with beautiful Views. You can make it more challenging if you want to get your heart pumping a bit and really get a good sweat in. ”

“The most incredible view possible. I absolutely love this trail! It has views in every direction, private places to sit and hang, and it relatively short (although very steep). Trail is in the Linville Gorge, in Morganton area. ”

“Upper Creek Falls is a beautiful setting with multiple cascades and a swimming hole complete with a rope swing for diving! It's located in the North Carolina mountains in Pisgah National Forest along NC Highway 181 (near the small community of Jonas Ridge, about 13.5 miles north of Morganton) and about 5.5 miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway. At the parking area, there are two options to start your hike on the loop trail. Take the Upper Falls trail first to a series of cascades dropping about 80 ft. along the rocky slope. The hike is 4/10-mile one-way with a downhill section near the water. After you descend a small staircase to the water's edge, you have three choices: turn left to reach the swimming hole; turn right for a view from the top of the main waterfall; or cross the creek to continue on the loop trail and get a better look at the main waterfall.”
