$26 + park fee/pass. Long hike: 9½ mi., 3200 ft. ascent, 800 ft. descent. Moderate hike: 5 mi., 2200 ft. ascent, 400 ft. descent.
We’ll reach the towering cascade from Rt. 630 on the west side of the Blue Ridge by ascending narrow Overall Run Canyon on the Thompson Hollow and Tuscarora/Overall Run Trails. After viewing the falls, the Mathews Arm and Traces Trails take us to Mathews Arm Campground, where the moderate hike ends. Long hikers add distance southbound on the Elkwallow Trail and then north on the Appalachian Trail to Hogback Overlook on the Skyline Drive.
