A Typical Upper Creek Pool

What made the Upper Creek area so inviting for backpacking were the many fine falls and swimholes along its length. Here is one near the Moss Rock and adjacent to the Greentown trail on what is now part of the Mountains to Sea trail. Further upstream the trail opens into a wide campground and even further up there is the opportunity to do a difficult ascent along the creek to arrive eventually, after a full day of bushwacking and rock hopping, to the high falls near the headwaters of Upper.
