This hike leaves the base of the Appalachians, then enters the valley of Dry Creek. It then turns up a tributary, West Fork Dry Creek, where sheer rock walls rise as the stream cuts its way among boulders, rocks, cascades, and occasional pools, all shaded by rich woods. As you penetrate deeper, the ruggedness of the gorge reveals itself. Reach an erosion-resistant cliff line, where the watercourse spills in a widening fan to a clear but shallow pool. Steep rock walls form a wild viewing amphitheater for those who reach this waterfall of many spellings.
