Back in the truck, my waterfall chaser friend Kevin and I were headed to our next waterfall chasing adventure. Traveling on Highway 21 South then turning onto Highway 16 East/Highway 7 South. It was now past Noon and time to eat lunch. Kevin's wife had packed us some most cool sandwiches, chips and even cookies - what! Once we arrived at the Pelsor community area, we turned left off of Highway 7 South onto Highway 16 East headed to waterfall chasing heaven. There are so many waterfalls in this area to see and explore, it is so incredible.
On Highway 16 East you will be going approximately 9 miles to the Ben Hur community. Go past Ben Hur about a mile and turn left onto Forest Road #1205 - Country Road #68. You will see a wooden sign on a tree marked Falling Water Horse Camp. Continue on this road and you will see Falling Water Creek on the right and soon Falling Water Horse Camp. Next you will see the famous and ever popular Falling Water Falls. This waterfall is only 100' off of the road and is a local swimming hole in the summer for the locals. Once on this road you will be going 5.3 miles to a short bridge going across Falling Water Creek. Park just past the bridge and walk back over the bridge to the trailhead to Fuzzy Butt Falls. The trailhead is an old horse trail which is past the bridge in the opposite direction from where you parked. From the trailhead to the falls it is approximately a 2 mile round trip.
This is a well traveled trail and easy to follow through the woods. We passed a few people leaving on the trail. After a lot of rain this trail can create some really ooey gooey mud, so keep that in mind with what boots you might want to wear. You will come across the first creek crossing that goes across the trail and notice some beautiful moss covered rocks on the left. Also to the left you will see a trail that is near to this small creek. This trail will take you to Horsetail Falls which is 31' high. Back on the main trail Falling Water Creek continues on the right and you will eventually hear and see Six Fingers Falls through the trees. You will come up to another creek crossing which leads to a small box canyon on the left. Enter into the canyon and you see the paradise like Fuzzy Butt Falls. At the falls we had it all to ourselves to take shots which is always good for me since I take awhile to setup my tripod for different angles. This is a popular waterfall for people to visit because of its beauty and the main trail being family friendly.
