Short and relatively easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. Trail has two stream crossings which can be tricky to cross.
There is a false trail to the left at the first creek crossing. Do not go down that trail as it ends at private property.
Extreme flooding in May of 2018 left the trail with numerous trees down. The trail is passable, but requires some scrambling over those trees.
WHERE: Saluda, NC
DIRECTIONS: From I-26. Take Saluda Exit (Exit 59). Head East on Holbert Cove Road, away from downtown Saluda. Go about 3.3 miles on Holbert Cove Rd. Parking area will be on your right.
Hopefully you won’t ever need to use it, but what happens if the batteries in your GPS are dead?
