Early Bird gets the Worm Waterfall Tour!

  • Jul 26, 2013 · 7:00 AM

***This event is only open to those who have RSVP'd yes to The Annual Big Brevard Camping Trip.***

So what's better than a weekend of waterfalls?  How about a weekday of MORE waterfalls!  This option is open to another carpool vehicle, possibly two if there is interest, to head up early on Friday to spend the afternoon touring some favorite waterfalls in Highlands NC just West of Brevard.

This tour will include some major large waterfalls as well as a few more hidden gems you are unlikely to visit on your own. Waterfalls will include but may not be limited to Secret Falls (hidden gem), Waterfall on Scottsman Creek (hidden gem), and 4 waterfalls along the Cullasaja River Gorge including Bridal Veil Falls (the one you can drive behind) Dry Falls (which you can walk completely behind), Quarry Falls, and Cullasaja Falls (a massive waterfall).

Total hiking distance will be in the range of 4-5 miles max as most of these are relatively short hikes.

Bring snacks and rain gear though we are likely to stop for a bite to eat on the way.

Swimming options may present themselves at anytime so if you like to get wet, plan on it!  Secret falls is a fantastic swimming hole!

Details will be emailed to the participants.  We are planning to leave the Traingle at 7am to maximize our time and still arrive at the group camp with plenty of time to set up.

It makes the most since for carpools to caravan for this hike but if you are an individual interested email me directly and we will work something out.

Let the waterfall hunting games begin!

    Won't be able to leave as early as I had planned, so I'm going to have to miss the early bird hike.

    Any drivers have space for a pickup in Durham? Or if there's a group in Raleigh/Chapel Hill I can meet there?

    I will be leaving early Friday morning, 7-8ish, and coming back Sunday night around 10-11pm depending on what time we leave Brevard on Sunday. I have room for one more person in my car, as I learned last year 4 gets too tight with car camping gear.

      Spot taken yet? if not I don't mind hitching a ride along the way. Otherwise I see many fine drivers in the crew :P

      I will not be able to leave until early Friday morning due to LeAnna and I's work schedule.

    I will not be able to carpool since I live near Pinehurst. Where can I meet you?

    June 27, 2013

  • Casey M

    Yeah, I requested this weekend off about 2 or 3 months ago too!

    June 5, 2013

  • Chih-Wei C.

    Is it bad that I already requested that Friday off like 2 months ago when Brevard popped up on the calendar? Damn list! *chants* Flat Creek Falls!
