Teacups Falls is upstream of Beverly Hillbilly Falls, and to get to it, follow the directions to Beverly Hillbilly Falls, but instead of taking the faint path into the woods, stay on the MST and head into the switchbacks. It is half a mile from the turnoff to Beverly Hillbilly to the side spur down to Teacups Falls. After Steels Creek Falls and Beverly Hillbilly, this one will be a letdown. It’s not too bad, and I had a memorble experience the first time I visited so it will always hold a special place. The pic on the left is downstream of the one on the right.
