  • We hiked up the waterfall then realized there was a path afterwards! We did it the old fashion way. Beautiful place! We spent almost 2 hours hiking, taking pictures and just taking in all the beautiful nature surrounding us. A wonderful place to go!
  • One of the most beautiful places I've been, I've visited many times. There's great hiking and fishing above and below the falls. You can catch farm raised Rainbow Trout and wild small mouth bass. There are no Facilities close so pack it in. There's a wonderful hike above the falls past the picnic area. Wading and swimming are nice also above the falls.
  • Love these mountains and beautiful falls.grew up going to these mountains.took my kids to these mountains and now I'm taking my grandbabies.so beautiful.
  • Cool place to put the kickstand down for a min when trolling the Cherohala Skwy. Worth the short jog off the skwy.
  • Easily accessible and very beautiful waterfall. Swimming Pond below as well as one up top near the edge if you're up for moderate rock climbing up the right side. Follow the moderately difficult path on the left side to a nice little picnic area at the rear of the falls. While you're there follow the Cherohala Parkway towards North Carolina, a favorite with bikers, for some great Ridgetop views, but beware as it can be very desolate after sundown...VERY!
