This short hike behind the Blackwater Falls Lodge gives hikers views of a less crowded, but equally amazing waterfall.

Starting at the Blackwater Falls Lodge, head to the left side of the parking lot, where a trailhead becomes visible. Follow the clearly marked trail down until you reach a bridge which goes over the top of the falls. After the bridge, look for paths to allow you to get to the river level and the best views of the falls.

Nice how close-by these are

The falls are nice, but the rocks themselves are a cool find. It's also not far at all from the lodge.
