River Loop with Setrock Creek Falls

River Loop with Setrock Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This fun hike circles the upper South Toe River as it flows beneath the shadow of Mount Mitchell. The walking is not too steep or long, and includes a side trip to 60-foot Setrock Creek Falls. You will first climb away from the river, then walk along wooded slopes and brushy bluffs before descending to span the South Toe River on a bridge.

This hike starts at Black Mountain Recreation Area, a concentration of recreation opportunities in the Pisgah National Forest along the South Toe River, at the base of Mount Mitchell. This area includes a large-group campground as well as an additional campground for individual campers. A fine network of trails laces South Toe River valley, including North Carolina’s master path—the Mountains-to-Sea Trail—and a track leading to the top of Mount Mitchell, as well as trails for casual bicyclists."
