Driving Directions

The closest public access to Reems Creek below the falls is where NC Hwy. 251 crosses it where it joins the French Broad River about a mile downstream. You can't see anything from there.

Trail Description

If Reems Creek is in fact "navigable" (and I'm not saying that it is), you could just wade upstream from the Hwy. 251 bridge to the falls, staying in the stream bed below the normal high water mark, without much trouble. Otherwise, this is on private property with no public access.
