Crabtree Falls Campground via Crabtree Falls Trail
This is a moderate trail off the Blue Ridge Parkway that features a waterfall.
You'll hear the impressive Crabtree Falls before you see it from the viewing platform. The trail is well-marked and the views are well worth the hike.
There's a large parking area off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Crabtree Meadows Campground. The trailhead begins here and points in the direction of the falls.
Use caution around the waterfall as many of the rocks are slippery. After a rain, the stairs heading toward the falls an be slick as well. It is a short hike that can be managed by both children and dogs.
