Courthouse Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Courthouse Falls is also called Coon Dog Falls. While on the hunt, a hound was swept away by the current and inadvertently took the plunge. Shockingly, this cataract was successfully descended by daredevil kayakers who, like the lucky hound, lived to bark about it. Flowing through the Balsam Grove area of Pisgah National Forest, Courthouse Creek is a major tributary of the North Fork of the French Broad River. Courthouse Creek charges through Summey Cove, picking up speed as the gradient increases."
