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.
