Toms Creek Falls

Fairly easy 0.4-mile hike. Near Marion.

County: McDowell 

Driving directions:

From the junction of US 221 and US 70 northwest of Marion, drive north on US 221 for 5.65 miles and turn left on Huskins Branch Road (SR 1440). Follow this road 1.2 miles to a small parking area on the right bordered by an old rail fence.


Walking directions:

The trail starts at the upper end of the parking area at the kiosk. It’s wide, well graded, and easily followed all the way to the viewing deck below the falls. Just before the deck, a path on the right leads up to a viewpoint on a rock. The waterfall is very high and scenic.
