Big Creek hike with Friends of the Smokies

Big Creek - midnight hole

I’m leading an easy and beautiful hike on Big Creek for Friends of the Smokies on Thursday September 20.

Discover beautiful waterfalls and a choice swimming hole in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  On Thursday, September 20, join the next Classic Hike of the Smokies for a waterfall-filled guided hike along Big Creek.

Hikers may wade or swim in Midnight Hole and admire Mouse Creek Falls, dubbed by waterfall aficionado and photographer Kevin Adams as one of his favorite in western North Carolina.

This is an easy 10-mile hike with a total elevation gain of 1,100 ft.

Classic Hikes of the Smokies occur monthly on the third Thursday. Upcoming hikes in the 2012 series include Caldwell Fork in Cataloochee in October and Hyatt Ridge Discovery hike in November. 

To register for any of the hikes, contact Friends of the Smokies at or 828-452-0720.
