Greenland Creek Falls Campsite

On this hike to Greenland Creek Falls we started at Cold Mountain Gap trailhead and walked the Mac Gap trail sown to the creek – then followed 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 up 200 feet to the the gravel Cold Mountain Gap road.
