Bubbling Spring Branch Cascades

Height: 30 feet
Trail Type: Gravel
Hike Distance: Roadside View
Difficulty: 1
Beauty: 4

Overview:

Bubbling Spring Branch Cascades are viewable from a pullout along NC 215 on the north side of the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you’re feeling like an expert hiker, there are several waterfalls along Bubbling Spring Branch in this area, but all of the directions I’ve seen are pretty vague and require some steep scrambles. The cascades aren’t anything special, but worth a look if you’re in the area.

Directions:

From the intersection of the Blue Ridge Parkway and NC 215, head north on NC 215 for just under 2 miles. There are several pullouts along the way, but look for the one that’s been gutted under the guardrail.
