Snowbird Creek has its origin high in the Unicoi Mountains, and within Nantahala National Forest, which ensures excellent water quality. The Snowbird Mountains form the southern rim of the gorge. The upper portion of the creek is very remote and flows through three sections of falls named Upper, Middle, and Big, all of which are well upstream of the sections described. The river becomes less remote as Snowbird winds its way to its inundation at Santeetlah Lake. The creek is only runnable after heavy rainfall and has at best a two-day window.
