Upper Rock Creek Falls

Here are some pretty bad pictures of Upper Rock Creek Falls in Unicoi County.

DIRECTIONS: Take Exit 19 off of I-26. Turn right coming from Johnson City and left coming from Erwin. Go 0.2 mile and turn right onto Unicoi Road. Go 0.4 mile and turn left on to state road 395. Go 3.1 miles to Rock Creek Park, on your left. Drive all the way through the park past campsite loops A, B and C. There is a nice gravel parking and picnic area at the head of Rock Creek Trail. Follow the signs for Rock Creek Falls Trail and do not follow the bike trails. The hike to the lower falls is 1.7 miles and much of it is steep and rocky. Continue more steep hiking past the lower falls for another 0.3 mile. The trail ends at the base of Upper Rock Creek Falls. These falls are also known simply as Rock Creek Falls. There are at least four stream crossings. There are plenty of smaller falls that you will see before you reach the lower falls.
