Two small forks come together to create East Fork Campbell Creek. Both forks have small waterfalls a few hundred feet upstream from their confluence. On the river-left fork is Alyssa Falls, a scenic waterfall set in a lush setting of moss and dog hobble. On the river-right fork is Lyn Lowry Falls. It’s not as scenic as Alyssa Falls, but certainly worth seeing if you’ve come this far.
Lyn Lowry Falls is named for Mount Lyn Lowry, from which the stream originates. It’s the mountain with the big white cross on top that’s visible for miles around, especially at night when the cross is lit. Lyn Lowry was the daughter of General Sumter Lowry. She died from leukemia in 1962, just after her 15th birthday. General Sumter erected the cross a few years later and had the mountain renamed in Lyn’s honor.
