Little Stony Creek Falls

The plan was to head to the Devil’s Bathtub on Devil’s Fork Creek, a couple of miles north on 619 from Ft. Blackmore in Scott County VA.  However, when we got there, the creek was running too high to wade across, much less wade the 10 or so more crossings to get to the Bathtub, so we fell back and went on up to Little Stony Creek, near Coeburn.  There are three falls on that creek and, because of the recent rains, they were all in full flow.  Here’s the upper one (it’s about 40′ top to bottom):

A little below that one is the middle falls (I had to slide down to stream level to get the shot):

And, then, the lowest falls:

It’s not a long-distance hike, by any means, but, on a warm day, it’ll work up a sweat.
