Morgan Hollow Falls


Tim Stoops


This is a huge waterfall and rock shelter with a 130 acre watershed. Needs to be measured. The shelter is unique in that it has a grassy ground cover. Best accessed from the old forestry road off Tarr Ridge. Hike down the closed forest road into the hollow. At some point the road ends and you can hike up the creek to the falls. There is a very neat karst feature along the way; a cascading limestone canyon.
