Whiteoak Creek Falls

Whiteoak Creek Falls, Nantahala National Forest

It is a good year for waterfalls.

I’ve driven past this lovely spot many times without knowing it was there. According to Kevin Adams, in his superb book, North Carolina Waterfalls:

[This] is one of the more geologically interesting waterfalls in the region. The rock is stratified and jagged, not worn smooth like most river rock.

A small watermill once occupied the site, but all traces have long since disappeared.
