Grassy Creek Falls is a good, short diversion in Little Switzerland that can be combined with nearby waterfall hikes to Crabtree Falls and Toms Creek Falls. Although access passes through private land, the landowners thankfully allow hikers and horseback riders to access the waterfall from Chestnut Grove Branch Road. The 25-foot main drop of Grassy Creek Falls is surprisingly powerful and beautiful considering the namesake creek originates close to the trailhead.
