Nantahala National Forest Rufus Morgan Falls
At 60 feet tall, Rufus Morgan Falls is a beautiful cascade waterfall located deep in the Nantahala National Forest west of Franklin, North Carolina. This iconic waterfall was named after Albert Rufus Morgan, a conservation pioneer who helped to maintain large swaths of the nearby Appalachian Trail up until his death in 1983. An easy and family friendly 1.0 mile loop takes visitors to the falls while exploring the cove forest surrounding the Left Prong of Rough Fork. This off-the beaten path trail is rated as one of North Carolinas best wildflower hikes with its unique summer display of blooming flame azaleas, mountain laurel, and rhododendrons.
