This waterfall is hidden in the Rock Creek Scenic Area of the Cherokee National Forest. Start in more woods than rock, then delve into the Rock Creek Valley, where boulders, cliffs, and rock formations become the rule. Two creek crossings lead you to these falls, first a two-tiered 20-foot rumbler, followed by a brief placid stretch, then a second cataract below which lies a plunge pool.
