Brandy Creek Falls

Brandy Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Climb an old logging road to a series of short falls on Brandy Creek.

Brandy Creek Falls descend in low-angled stair steps, fanning over slick, shiny slabs and weaving through boulder-choked channels. The path that explores the falls wanders over footbridges and tangles of tree roots that can be slippery in wet weather or when soaked by mist. The complexity of the walking and the different faces of the falls make for an enlivening end-of-trail experience—a nice conclusion to an otherwise straightforward climb through a dark, dense woodland."

"Lower Brandy Creek and Upper Brandy Creek falls will thrill you in the spring, when peak flows swell the creek and create a show of watery splendor. The moderate climb is a bit strenuous, but the overall distance is relatively short and the effort is easily forgotten once the dramatic scenery captivates you at the falls. Photographers will find the best light at midday."
