This circuit hike in the Pisgah National Forest near Brevard leads you to three fine waterfalls tucked deep in the hollows of the Davidson Creek Valley. Head up scenic Avery Creek and view warm-up Avery Creek Falls, then cross numerous bridges before turning up Henry Branch. Find Twin Falls, a pair of 80-foot cataracts that merge at their base. This hike then winds along the slopes of Clawhammer Mountain before diving into narrow Clawhammer Cove to complete the circuit. Hiker bridges make this water-centric hike a dry-footed affair.
