Rock Slab Falls
A gentle waterfall flowing over smooth rocks sparkling with bands of quartz, Rock Slab Falls is a former logging camp littered with reminders of those who used to call it home.
Fed by Forney Creek, the falls features a long, two-part slide, with each section standing at about 25 feet high. Iron pipes, railroad fragments, and even an old wheel and axle from a train car litter the grounds around the falls, evidence of the former community. Among the fresh-smelling Fraser fir-red spruce trees surrounding Rock Slab Falls, hikers can also expect to see Rugel’s ragwort, a rare, cream-colored wildflower that only grows in the highest elevations of the Smoky Mountains.
