Denton Falls is located in the Southern Nantahala Wilderness near the community of Tate. The trail is a fairly easy walk and well worth it. To reach the falls cross Denton creek and follow the old roadbed upstream. At 2/10ths of a mile the road forks. Take the right fork as it turns into a path. Follow for about 800' to the base of the falls.
