If you are in the South Toe River Valley, then consider a quick detour to the beautiful Roaring Fork Falls. Located just off NC-80 this waterfall is accessed via an easy 1.5-mile hike. From NC-80 turn left onto South Toe River Road towards the Black Mountain Campground and take an immediate left on Busick Work Center Road after a bridge over Still Fork Creek. At the end of the road is a small parking area before a gated compound, the Roaring Fork Falls Trail follows a gravel road to the waterfall. This waterfall is not tall but makes up for it with a beautiful setting as the creek pours through a narrow, green chasm over many small cascades. Pictures do not do justice the steepness and power of this amazing waterfall.
