This is a not so secret but super tricky waterfall to get to that rewarded my journey with more than I could imagine. The first time I had been to Gorges State Park in North Carolina was for a 3 day hike and on the first day my hiking partner and I had the GPS point for this falls but because of the lack of established paths we still couldn't find this falls!
So, this last week a buddy of mine who is a ranger in the park set off to try and actually find it. After about 4 miles hiking on the main path and then about an hour wading through the creek/river upstream towards the falls we came around the bend to this awesome sight. The climb out along the ridge led us eventually back to the path which was tricky but much less work than the hike in through the creek. Really beautiful waterfall and if you are adventurous hopefully you can find it too!
