I love wandering some off-trail stream in search of waterfalls and have done it numerous times in Shenandoah. It is always a little treasure when you find those falls that almost no one else ever sees or even knows exists.
This part of NC/SC is packed with waterfalls, many undiscovered by the average hiker/backpacker.
What amazed me about this bushwhack was the sheer number of excellent waterfalls that lay hidden on the steep slopes in such close proximity to one another. I can only imagine what other secrets lie hidden there in Jocassee Gorge.
Kentucky is one of the eastern states where I have NEVER hiked. I keep saying I'll get over there but time and opportunity are never quite there for me.
