This hike—the most challenging in this entire guide—takes you to Buckeye Falls, which holds distinction as the highest waterfall in the East. Start the trek with the fi rst of several fords of Clark Creek, entering Sampson Mountain Wilderness. A rough, unmaintained trail gets rougher and rougher. Finally, head straight up a tributary of Clark Creek to reach a high cliff and Buckeye Falls, with its sloping height of more than 475 feet.
