There are dozens of streams that trickle out of the ground from the peaks that are Grandfather Mountain. On the Southeast face springs the beginnings of Wilson Creek. These headwaters flow crisp and clean into the valley below growing in width and depth as they merge with others. Eventually it becomes the Wilson Creek and that feeds the gorge of class rapids that get kayaked all Summer long. It all starts with this little spring. I had a fabulous Saturday exploring these waters and this valley.
