This small unnamed waterfall is along FR475, not too far from the intersection with FR471. If you are coming from Brevard, follow US276 5.2 miles North and make the right onto FR475. After 3.2 miles the road turns to gravel and as of my March 2016 visit, some places were in very poor condition. The unnamed waterfall is 5.7 miles from the intersection with US276 and there is a parking area just before the falls on the left side of the road if you’re heading toward FR471. At about 5.6 miles the road makes a hard right. The parking area is on the outside of this turn. From there it is a short walk up the road. If you’re not that worried about it, you can stop in front of the falls and take a picture. Or for that matter you can roll down the window and take a picture. It’s not worth heading out to see this one but if you’re on the way to Cathey’s Creek or Gloucester Gap take a look.
