Rufus Morgan Falls

A high, cascading slide in an pretty cove. It almost looks like it’s coming off the top of a ridge rather than a stream valley. It’s surprisingly difficult to get a good photograph of what is otherwise a pretty falls.

Driving Directions

Take US 64 West from Franklin for 3.7 miles. Turn right on Old Murphy Rd, go 0.1 mi, and then turn left on Wayah Rd (SR 1310). Go 6.3 miles and turn left on FS 388, which is gravel. Go 2 miles to the parking area on the right, which is signed. (FS 388 may be gated in winter, and – although a bit long – makes a nice added hike to get to the trailhead).
