Rufus Morgan Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"It might have an unusual name, in an out-of-the-way place, deep in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest, but Rufus Morgan Falls is a little gem of a trail that is worth the trek. The pooches will be pleased with the softly padded path and the numerous stream crossings and water sources."
--Karen Chavez, Best Hikes with Dogs: North Carolina (The Mountaineers Books).
"The Rufus Morgan Trail, a short loop, is cut out of a mountainside. You will encounter some steps, as well as narrow tread and stream crossings. You will pass through a mature hardwood stand to reach the waterfall. Rough Fork Creek slides down a 70-foot drop into a small pool surrounded by ferns."
--Nicole Blouin, Steve Bordonaro, & Marilou Wier Bordonaro, Waterfalls of the Blue Ridge: A Hiking Guide to the Cascades of the Blue Ridge Mountains (Menasha Ridge Press).
