  • Mouse Creek Falls is a historic place and a beautiful waterfall along the Big Creek Trail. The trail is an old railroad grade so it's not a super difficult trail to hike. Along the trail is multiple waterfalls and places to swim and picnic. You can possibly see animals in Big Creek watershed such as elk or black bears. I love hiking to Mouse Creek Falls with my daughter and wife.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Great trail if you want to stay away from the crowds. We must have went during the off season, because all of the bathrooms were closed, so be prepared for that. Also, make sure you go up the little drive for the mouse creek trail. It is not the trail over the bride. That is a difficult trail and we made that mistake, haha. This is a pretty easy, to moderate hike. Beautiful drive from Asheville.
