Dismal Creek Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"On this hike to the broad cascade of Dismal Falls, you will pass through thick groves of rhododendron. This day hike is a good choice for mid-June because the rhododendron bloom is at its peak. Dismal Creek is a popular trout stream.
From the trailhead on VA 606, hike north on the A.T. and begin climbing Brushy Mountain. At mile 1.9, reach the junction with the blue-blazed side trail to Dismal Creek Falls. Turn left on the side trail and hike another 0.25 mile to the falls overlook. To return, hike back to the A.T. on the side trail, turn right on the A.T., and hike south to VA 606."
