I was relieved since we were enjoying looking at the little river by the highway.
By then we went on down the second road which went directly to Hooker Falls, where we found the shorter and easier trail that we were interested in. It had been improved since I was there about 4-5 years ago. And a new pedestrian bridge leads across the Little River to help hikers go to the Triple Falls Trail.
There was plenty of white water, moving pretty fast. But the banks didn't show that it was at all high from the streambed.
Yes there is a young barefoot man in yellow swim trunks standing at the foot of the falls on one of the flat shelves of rock.
After enjoying seeing some dogwood in bloom (it was 80 degrees that afternoon) I finally found a patch of Galax at the base of this tree, which I remembered seeing on my first visit.
