Greenland Creek Falls

On this hike to Greenland Creek Falls we started at Cold Mountain Gap and walked to the Powerline and Greenland Creek Falls trail. We followed the trail down a ridgeline for 250 feet to the creek – then walked Greenland Creek upstream until the trail ends at the falls.

Greenland Creek Falls are impressive and drop roughly 40-50 feet into a heavily forested and rocky pool at their base. From here, backtrack to a junction with the Mac Gap Trail and follow an old forest road back to the the gravel Cold Mountain Gap road.
