Cathy's CreekCathy's Creek is quite the anomaly for Pisgah forest. It is overhanging and stays dry in a thunderstorm. The area is in the shade for most of the day. The climbing is powerful and gymnastic. A great resource for Pisgah climbers and those traveling through town. Please respect the wild and natural state of the area. Keep your dogs on a leash and pack out what you pack in.
Tread lightly and carpool. Leave no trace! Details
Please do not park in any way that would obstruct the forest service road.

Enter the trail through the obvious trailhead by the concrete bridge just upstream of the falls. Follow the trail on the right that heads in the downstream direction. The falls will be within 100 yards or so on your right the whole time. The crag is approximately 10 minutes from the trail head and only a couple hundred yards up the hill from the creek.
