Rough Butt Creek Falls

Far Off The Beaten Path And Fed By Rough Butt Creek, This Scenic, 30-foot Waterfall Features Cascading Falls, A Small Pool, And Banks Overflowing With Fern And Rhododendron, And Rocks Coated In Moss.

Without the old railroad running by one bank of the river, you might get the sense that you’re in the middle of the rainforest, thanks to the explosion of greenery. The 40-foot cascade hits a small pool at the bottom, which you can easily wade across for a better view. But be careful—the rocks may be slippery.
