Big Bradley Falls

I went back to see Big Bradley falls last weekend and spent some time at the top of the falls. The area and the falls themselves are gorgeous, and the hike to the top is easy, but I have to reiterate that the area is dangerous and the top of the waterfall can be very dangerous as you’re at the top of a gorge. I will go back again, but next time I want to get to the base of the falls. The trailhead I started from is easily found on Holbert Cove Road (SR 1142). Many websites will direct you there. From there, after about a mile hike, I accessed the top of the falls. After the short hike to the creek crossing, I continued on the clear path but dropped down to the creek fairly quickly (on a clear trail that leads to a campsite). Then, I followed the creek to the falls. From the pictures I think you can see that this can be dangerous. Going forward, I will explore more of the paths around the falls.
