Great place! The park is well maintained and my kids love it. The trail, although a bit dull, is clearly marked and very easy. My favorite thing to do here is to rent the canoes for the day and go fishing. Being on the lake is much more interesting than walking the trail

Since this trail is only about an hour drive for my family and I, we visit quite often. Yes there is graffiti, and trash, but the trail is beautiful. Especially during the spring months when the flowers are blooming and the wildlife is waking up. I don't understand the people who are complaining about trail markers...unless you are a city slicker who doesn't get out much the trails are easy to find and follow. Overall this place provides a great experience and a good workout.

Brasstown Waterfall Series Trail

Some GPS do not give the correct Location. Follow Brasstown road until it becomes a gravel road (about 3 miles). Continue for another 1.4 miles and right before small bridge, then turn right on dirt road, follow road to the end. The short easy hike downstream brings you to the top of the first falls, after that hiking is much more difficult with some spots being very narrow and steep. But to see the other falls requires taking it slow and careful, but definitely worth it. Highly recommended, nice series of falls.

The 8.8 mile hike that includes a .5 out & back hike to the viewing platform is a full day of varied terrain and beauty!
I've hiked this twice. The first time I add to be rescued- the Dismal Trail was more than May flexor muscles (hips and groin) could take. Dismal is closed now- thank goodness! I don't have any excuse to try and even the score between me and that butt-buster!

The second time in did this hike, was amazing. I'm not a huge fan of the humidity, so I recommend this hike in October - November, even
December as weather permits!
As a photographer I'm always chasing autumn colors. Fall foliage is tricky business so I keep weekends open this time of year in the hopes I'll hit peak colors on a sunny blue sky day!
Happy hiking!!

Best hike I have done in awhile. It's a bit difficult but worth it. The falls are beautiful. I did this hike on Wednesday with my dog and had the whole waterfall to ourselves.

Great hike with my daughter and puppy. Beautiful waterfall and fun crossing streams. Easy but had a few small climbs- we went after a rainy day so water was really flowing.

Buncombe Trail

2 Completed 1 Reviews

Buncombe is made up of several trails. The outer trail is about 26 miles. However, it is possible to take several trails and shorten the trip. This past weekend we took a ~18 mile track from the TH on the blue trail, to the green then white trails, We came back the gray to green and back to the TH on the blue trail. With several small exceptions the trails are well marked. It looks like they have even started to put up mileage markers in places. The major problem we had was lack of water. We only found one spot on the White trail with running water. Its been a dry year in SC. So if you go this fall be sure to bring plenty of water. Also it is hunting season so there was a great deal of hunting going on. I would suggest every hiker to wear orange. We are just getting into multi night overnight hiking and this was a good place to practice. I can see us going back and completing the entire loop. If you live near the area I would recommend it.
