Upper Creek Falls (NC) – 8 – 9 – 2012

After our last trip to Bard Falls in the Harper Creek area a week ago, we completed seeing all the waterfalls that area had to offer so this week we found ourselves at the Upper Creek Falls. These falls are also located in North Carolina and not far from the Harper Creek Valley on state highway 181 that runs between the Pineola and Linville Falls area and Morganton. Arriving at the trail head around our usual time of 10:30am, my friend Dave, who had already been here before, educated me on the layout of the trails while I took some photographs of the Beacon Heights Tower. Here is a zoomed pic so you can see it better. (It seems like you can see that structure from anywhere around here). There are two trails to choose from here, the Upper Falls trail and the Lower Falls trail which when combined allows for a very nice loop hike. Since we were planning on exploring the creek above the upper falls to possibly discover some more falls or cascades, we chose to go on the upper falls trail and if time and weather allowed, to come back on the lower falls trail.
