Falls of Hickey Fork

Falls of Hickey Fork Professional Review and Guide

"This challenging waterfall hike makes a loop through remote terrain near the Tennessee state line. Explore the upper Hickey Fork valley in Pisgah National Forest’s Shelton Laurel Backcountry.

Cross a log hiker bridge, then turn up West Prong Hickey Fork, passing two significant waterfalls and other lesser shoals, before rising to Seng Gap. A mountainside climb commences before you descend to East Prong Hickey Fork. Reach an often-gated forest road and easy hiking to close the loop."
