NC - Balsam Grove (NC-215) - Courthouse Falls

Courthouse Falls. Turn east from NC-215 onto FS-140 to the Summey Cover Trail Head.

There is NO parking area, just a small pull off area, and you will be on dirt and gravel road that winds and twists all of the way. If you are the type of rider that worries about your chrome, don't even think about this one. National Forest roads are not much more than trails and getting help out here can be very expensive and time consuming. Don't expect your cell phone to work. Yer in the deep woods, Bubba!

The falls is a 45 foot drop into a very picturesque plunge pool. Great photo opportunity, and not one that is visited by crowds of people.
