Beverly Hillbilly Falls is the next waterfall upstream from Steels Creek Falls. I like this one becasue of the way the creek abruptly turns at the base of the falls. Getting to it requires a crossing of Steels Creek and some bushwhacking, although there is enough of a path you can follow. Follow the directions to Steels Creek Falls, and continue upstream for anotehr 0.3 of a mile. At this point the MST makes a left and starts to climb. There is a less obvious trail that continues straight. You want this one. A tenth of a mile later, cross Steels Creek and enter the woods. A worn track will lead you to the base of the falls.
