Driving Directions

This cascade is located on FR 74, on the first drainage past the big switchback at Corner Rock Creek, just uphill of the road. From Asheville, NC, take I-240 West to I-26/U.S. 19-23 North. Go 12.4 miles to Exit 15, N.C. 197 for Jupiter/Barnardsville. Turn right at the end of the ramp and follow N.C. 197 for 6.0 miles to downtown Barnardsville. Turn right onto Dillingham Road just past the old fire station. Go 4.9 miles on Dillingham Road - bear left at a fork after 2.2 miles, left again at a fork at 3.6 miles, and right at 3.9 miles just after a narrow bridge. The road transitions to gravel at the 4.9 mile mark - continue straight into the Big Ivy area of Pisgah National Forest on F.R. 74. Go another 3.7 miles on F.R. 74 to the crossing of Little Andy Creek and park in the wide area on the road. This road is curvy and bumpy, but easily traveled by a passenger vehicle.
