This is a easy loop trail to Upper Crabtree Falls in Blue Ridge Parkway. This trail goes by Crabtree Falls and Crabtree Falls Campground.

Getting Started

Follow the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Crabtree Falls Campground and park in the hiker parking area near the former store. Don't park in the camping area itself. Follow signed trail through the camping area down to the falls (0.9 miles). From the falls the trail crosses a bridge and returns to the parking area after passing through Loop B of the campground.

Taking Children

This is an excellent hike for children. The loop in either direction requires a somewhat steep climb back to the parking area, so be sure younger children are up to the task.
