Description 

Main attraction for this area are the cascading falls (one of highest east of Mississippi)....might as well bring crash pad as hike up the well maintained and marked trail.

Great boulders all along trail.

Main trail is well marked every 1/10th mile (top of falls is 1.7 miles from parking lot).

Getting There 

If on parkway head to MP 26.5'ish and head down Rt 56 for 6.5 miles....it'll be super windy and steep decline until you reach well marked turn for Crabtree Falls.

Hiked this a few years ago and was a great hike but didn't have a pad with me. Anyone ever bouldered along the trail and know of any spots that are worth checking out? Thanks!
