Waterfalls : Shoshone Falls is so beautiful, several waterfalls, beautiful colors in the rock, and it looked like there was a cave in the rock. I want to go back some day and explore it more.

Gorges State Park (Rainbow Falls Trail), Transylvania County (6-2-12) : Gorges State Park is North Carolina's westernmost State Park and home to some of the most rugged and variable scenery in the state.  Some dozen or so waterfalls cascade through its deep, rocky gorges and access to much of the park is difficult at best.

Located just south of Lake Toxaway, the park has seen a good number of upgrades to its infrastructure in recent years.  The trail to Rainbow Falls is a good example of this.  Only 5 years ago the hike to these falls was a strenuous all-day event involving a combination of overgrown trails and bushwhacking.  Today, thanks to a new paved entrance road and an upgraded trail system the hike to Rainbow, Stairway, Hidden, and Turtleback Falls is now a pleasant 4-mile round trip down a wide, well-graded path.  Unfortunately, however, with improved access this area has seen a marked increase in visitation so the wilderness feel (on this trail, at least) has diminished somewhat.  Nonetheless, the opportunity to visit no less than four impressive waterfalls for only 4-miles of effort is one you shouldn't pass up.  This is hike is a true gem of the mountains as you'll soon see...

Courthouse Falls & Creek, NC (6-1-12) : Courthouse Falls has always been one of my favorite western North Carolina cascades.  As it turns out, it is now only about a ten or so mile drive from where we now live so I can literally visit it as often as I'd like!  The falls are located off North Carolina Highway 215 about 6 miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Transylvania County.  A rather rugged (and frequently washed out) forest road leads to within a quarter mile of the falls so they are quite easy to visit considering their location (as long as you have a high-clearance vehicle).  At about 45' in height the falls are located in a deep, lush gorge which enhances the serenity of the place.  This album follows the short path to the falls and includes a couple additional cascades you pass on the drive up to the falls.  Enjoy...

<b>Directions to Trailhead:</b>
-Follow NC-215 either 6.5 miles south from the Blue Ridge Parkway or north 10.5 miles from US-64 to FR-140.
-Follow FR-140 for about 3 miles and park at the pull-off just past the bridge over Courthouse Creek (look for the marked trail on the opposite side of the road).
