This loop starts with convenient parking at Simmons Middle School and follows Hurricane Branch upstream as it tumbles out the narrow valley between Pine Mountain and Shades Mountain. In wet weather, it offers multiple waterfalls as the stream winds through sandstone boulders. The climax comes at High Falls, a serious multistage waterfall. From there, a spur trail makes a steep uphill scramble to the Top of the World Boulders, which afford an expansive view of the valley. The return portion of the loop crosses the stream and climbs the Shades Mountain ridge a bit before descending to wind through the Rock House Boulders, a natural playground in sandstone with cave-like openings that invite hiding, climbing, and exploring.
