Pisgah National Forest: Spring Creek Loop Trail

A beautiful morning ans so Noelle, Sierra, Parker and I headed out through Hot Springs to the Rocky Bluff Campground and the trailhead for a short hike on the Spring Creek Nature Trail.  The hike started with a pretty steep descent on a very wet trail.

Eventually we found ourselves at a little overlook on Spring Creek.

The creek was flowing pretty good given all the recent rains. Once at the creek the trail closely paralleled the stream and its many small cascades.

We stopped several times to admire the flowing water.

After the trail left the creekside it was a steep ascent back to the campground. We fed Sierra her lunch there and admired the flowers blooming. There was some white rhododendron
