I estimate that it's just about an hour's drive if you take Foothills Parkway. I've heard bad things about Highway 32 between Cosby and Big Creek; that might take significantly longer, but I don't know. The unpaved road into Big Creek isn't the best, but is short.

We avoided 32 by taking the Foothills Parkway to

I-40, and exiting at #451.

If you chose to go this way, here are the rest of the directions:

Exit 451

Right on Tobes Creek Rd for .2 mi

Left on Waterville Road

Follow Waterville 2 miles to National Park Road

You will pass the dam on Waterville Rd and the Big Creek Ranger Station on National Pk. Rd.

The trail head is located at the Big Creek Campground.

You have to take that stretch of 32 between Cosby and Big Creek really slow on account of all the curves. Southbound would be better if you're nervous about it. Beautiful route though. The unpaved portion is not a problem at all.
