This fun hike is a highlight of Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. Begin at the outdoor hub of Bandy Creek, complete with visitor center and campground. Delve into the Fall Branch canyon. Hike beside dusky bluffs cloaked in pine, hemlock, and rhododendron. One bluff descent involves a ladder as you infiltrate the valley, coming to 10-foot Fall Branch Falls, making a curtain-style nosedive over an overhanging rock rim. This waterfall walk uses the John Litton Farm Loop, a favored circuit hike in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. It starts at Bandy Creek, where there is a fine campground to complement your exploration of this preserved parcel administered by the National Park Service.
