The experience I would like to share with you will start with a 30 minute drive east of AVL. We will arrive at the trailhead around 9:30 am & begin our adventure on an easy uphill 1.25 mile trail. Along this path I will share with you the history of the area and discuss various plants & animals we may see as we venture along. At the end of this trail you will enjoy a lovely waterfall that will be full of people. From this point on the real adventure will begin! Beyond this waterfall is a secret second amazing waterfall that few people know about. The next 3/4 mile journey is difficult and involves climbing up a steep rocky wall & other rocky areas. We will go slowly & carefully, but you will need to be in decent shape & have proper footwear to make it. You will be holding onto rocks, roots, & branches as we go, but I will guide you along and I am confident you will be able to make the journey! Your reward will be an amazing peaceful waterfall with a great refreshing swimming hole! Yes the water is cold! There will most likely be no other people at this waterfall so we will have it for ourselves. After spending time swimming and having some snacks we will return to the trailhead. But our adventure does not have to end here! We can enjoy lunch at a great local brewery before departing from our wonderful experience! We usually arrive back in AVL around 2:30 pm.

I have been hiking in the AVL area for over 6 years now and love to share my experience with visitors! I especially love waterfall hikes and ones that have a nice swimming hole. I have a horticulture degree so I know lots about the native flora & fauna as well. Other outdoor activities that I enjoy include biking, photography, gardening, & scuba diving. There is nothing like getting outdoors and experiencing nature to the fullest. The Asheville area offers so much to see & enjoy and I would love to help you have an awesome experience while visiting WNC! Also I can take groups larger than 4 guests. It will just require that some of you follow me in another vehicle.

Our adventure begins when we depart Cozy Oak Cottage in AVL, NC and drive 30 minutes east to Old Fort, NC. Here we will hike from the trailhead to two beautiful waterfalls in approximately two miles distance one way (four miles round trip). We will enjoy a swim in the cold water and relax along the water's edge taking in the lovely scenery. Once back to the vehicle we will be able to enjoy a nice lunch at a local brewery.

Great experience and met some cool people along the way. It can be very treacherous and it's a commitment, but it was 100% worth it for the views.

My friend and I are in town for a Girl’s Weekend. We searched for some things to do while we were here and decided to book Randy because My friend had never seen a Waterfall before. When we pulled up to his home, we first noticed how cute it was. We were then greeted by a huge smile and we instantly felt at ease. We took a quick ride over to the place we would hike to see the Waterfalls. He was very easy to talk to on the ride over. He was also very organized and very prepared. He gave us a little snack before our adventure started which was a very nice treat. During our journey he told us all about the trees and different information about the area. Everything we saw was breathtaking. The first Waterfall we saw was beautiful. However the secret Waterfall was GORGEOUS!! Randy was very helpful in helping us all get to the second Waterfall as the journey was more intense then the first half. We really enjoyed our time with Randy and can’t wait to come back and visit with him again. Make sure to bring proper shoes, good tread is the key 😉

Randy was an excellent guide! Very, sweet, down to earth human. He was great at pointing out the nature & wildlife around us. The waterfall destination was amazing. So peaceful. Definitely take it in & relax once you get there! Hike was pretty easy. As long as you're ok with bending your knees & using some upper body strength, you should be fine. Can't wait to go back again!

If you are looking for a challenging but VERY rewarding hike then look no further. This was my second time doing this hike and it was well worth it!! Randy is knowledgeable and passionate about nature and this hike. He is patient, will make you feel safe the entire way, and tells you what to hold on to and where to place your foot, as well as help you up the mountain when needed. At the end you get to enjoy a beautiful waterfall that most people don’t know is there and will not get to experience. My sense of accomplishment was strong!!! SN Randy has not control over this but the public restroom is ATROCIOUS!!! BEWARE!!! Once the hike is over Randy will take you to a yummy eatery with magical views!!!
