  • Description: One of the lesser know waterfalls in the NC mountains. Beautiful hike!
  • Brief Directions: From areas west of Old Fort, take I-40 east and get off at Exit 72 (Hwy 70). Drive about 9.5 miles on Hwy 70 and take a left on Hwy 80 at a stop light. From areas east of Marion, get off I-40 on Hwy 221, go north to Hwy 70 west, then look for 80 north to the right. Hwy 80 is a very curvy road once it passes the lake. At just under 12 miles, come to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Continue on Hwy 80 for another 2.2 miles and turn left on South Toe River Rd (SR 1205). There may be a sign for the Busick Work Center and Black Mountain Campground. If you want to hit Roaring Fork Falls 1st, cross the bridge and turn left at the Busick Work Center sign. This road ends at the Center in less than 1/4 mile. Park on the left, the trail is the gated road to the right. Hike up the road for just over 1/2 mile. You'll begin to hear the creek on the left and the road crosses the creek. Just before the crossing, take the path to the right over the foot bridge. The trail ends at the base of the falls a short distance from the road. The falls is a 100' long beautiful cascade
