A Waterfall Lover’s Dream, The Flat Creek Hike In North Carolina Passes Cascade After Cascade
If chasing waterfalls is a passion you’re serious about, then a hike deep into the Nantahala National Forest to view Flat Creek Falls near Tuckasegee is in order. Rated as moderate by AllTrails, this hike clocks in at 5.8 miles round trip. Most people should be able to finish it in 4-5 hours. But you just may want to put a buffer in there so you can linger a while at the base of this 200 foot spectacle in the middle of the forest. It’s positively stunning.
