Description

Added by leisa eastman

Roaring Fork Falls is a short hike close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The fall are located near the Black Mountain Campground - about an hour from Asheville, NC.

Park at the work center but don't block the gate. Hike around the gate and head up the grassy and gravel road. Once you get to the creek a narrow path leads upstream to the base of the falls.
