The Apple Orchard Falls National Recreation Trail leaves Sunset Fields at milepost 78.4 on the Blue Ridge Parkway and winds down Apple Orchard Mountain generally following the headwaters of North Creek. Hikers will follow the coursing stream, enjoying the gurgling waters hopping over and pushing through boulders as it travels down the mountain. Along the way down, the trail pauses at a wooden platform overlooking the waterfalls, then travels further down to an elaborate boardwalk at the base of the waterfall.
