Description

Hike just past Hemlock Falls, and wade across the creek to find the beginning of this unmaintained trail. Expect the creek to be just above knee or higher--there is no way to stay dry. After crossing, follow the path up and along the creek to Upper Moccasin Creek Falls. The path is full of blow down and obstacles, traversing mostly mid-slope along the hillside directly over moccasin creek. Once you arrive at the falls, there is a very steep descent to the base of the falls.
