We were out driving around North Carolina looking for another waterfall when Mindy found another one with a short trail that looked good. We had to drive around the mountain to the other side of the watershed to get there, but made it by 17:30, we figured we would still have plenty of daylight.

If you like waterfalls this one is great. It was a little to chilly to wade at the base, so we only took pictures and skipped leaving footprints. Elk River Falls is a fine spot to have a picnic on the rocks. All we had were some nuts and raisins so it was time to go find supper.
