Description

This is the upper portion of the longest waterfall east of the Mississippi. Crabtree Falls is actually a series of waterfalls, and each section of the lower, middle, and upper falls can be seen as you hike along Crabtree Falls Trail. Upper Crabtree Falls is a particularly serene and picturesque waterfall that cascades down a large rock face.

Short Hike: Hike the Crabtree Falls Trail to 1.9-mile marker.

Family Friendly: Kids will enjoy the hike along the Crabtree Falls Trail and will enjoy seeing the waterfalls along the way.

Drove to the parking lot at the top of the falls, be careful with this option if your car has low clearance and is not 4-wheel drive since the back…
