The first lower drop in White Oak Canyon is described here. If you decide to torture yourself by heading downhill (which is not the real torture…heading back uphill is), then you’ll encounter a number of other drops. This particular drop is not amazingly photogenic, and it can be rather difficult to get shots of the better drops that are partially hidden from view. Even so, it is well worth visiting White Oak Canyon.
- At the intersection of US-211 and Skyline Drive, head south on Skyline Drive.
- After five or six miles, you should see the parking area for the White Oak Canyon Trail, which is where your journey begins. It’s just after the entrance to the Skyland Resort.
- From here, follow the very clear signage for about 2.5 miles to the first falls. After the first lower falls, this is the next in succession. Be aware: the further downhill you progress, the longer the uphill climb you have. The uphill climb is where the difficulty lies.
Accessibility: 2/10 (strenuous)
Length of Hike: 4.6 miles round-trip
