Hickory Branch Falls is accessed from Curtis Creek Campground. Despite being in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Parkway, the falls and campground are most often reached from I-40 near Old Fort. Hickory Branch tumbles through a deep vale hemmed in by Buckeye Knob and Moses Ridge. During its frothy flow through crowded rhododendron thickets and rising hardwoods, Hickory Branch finds an erosion-resistant cliff, spilling into a gravelly pool ensconced in vegetation.
