This Difficult Half-Mile Hike Leads To A Beautiful Peek-A-Boo Waterfall In North Carolina
In the wilds near Tuckasegee, North Carolina, is a 100-foot-tall waterfall where Wolf Creek drops dramatically into a slot canyon in true peek-a-boo fashion. The effect is as mesmerizing as is the emerald green swimming hole just beyond the drop. You’d think this gorgeous spot would be loaded with people, but there’s a catch: getting here is a difficult journey of a little more than a half mile of technically difficult maneuvers. Most people shouldn’t attempt this hike. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to see what we’re missing! Right?!
