This hike is an East Tennessee classic. Start at the historic Rock Creek Recreation Area just outside of Erwin. Hike along lively Rock Creek. Enter the Unaka Mountain Wilderness, and take a narrow path deep into a mountain chasm fi lled with bluff s rising among lush woods. Hop Rock Creek several times and come to an attractive falls. Hike a little farther to reach the semicircular rock amphitheater into which the actual Rock Creek Falls tumbles. Admire its two-tiered beauty before returning to the recreation area, a worthy destination in its own right.
