Little Ugly Creek Falls - Trip Details

As a large family, we find renting a home for a night much more relaxing than a hotel, and it's so nice to have a place nearby to crash after a long day of hiking! You can find nice, affordable homes on Vrbo.

Little Ugly Creek Falls is just a few hundred yards upstream of Deer Skull Falls.  To get there, you can climb up the side of the canyon and cross the creek that feeds Deer Skull Falls B and continue upstream along Little Ugly Creek Falls.  The canyon is full of character here, with rock walls, moss, and clear water around every bend as you follow Little Ugly Creek (going for irony with the name?).

Exploring the canyon was a fitting end to a trip to visit Eagle Creek Falls, Deer Skull Falls, and wrap up with Little Ugly Creek Falls.  If you want to stay on major trails, you could consider checking out Kinlock Falls just off the road, Mize Mill Falls, Parker Falls, or Caney Creek Falls which are all in Bankhead National Forest.  That's not to mention a plethora of unnamed waterfalls in this area with plentiful streams and creeks and rocky canyons.

    1. Thanks for the heads-up, Angel. I thought that I had fixed all of these plugin problems, but I must have missed this one!
