  • Not far off the highway at all, wear your swim shoes and swim suit, it’s a great swimming hole. Parking can be precarious along the shoulder. Wide trail to the falls.  more »
  • Parking is a challenge on the highway but we found a spot. The Falls was only a short walk and if you are inclined you can take a dip or wade.  more »
  • Silver Run Falls is just a short hike to visit this beautiful waterfall. There is a small parking area along NC-107 about 3 miles south of Cashiers. It's just a pull off along the road so keep you eyes peeled. And it's a popular spot, so parking can be an issue. A short trail leads to the waterfall and the shallow pool is nice for swimming. There's also another waterfall further up. To to the left of Silver Run Falls is a cliff with lots of roots. Use the roots to climb up and it levels off at the top. Follow the obvious but overgrown path for about 5 minutes to Upper Silver Run Falls. While Silver Run Falls is usually pretty crowded, there's never anyone at Upper Silver Run Falls.
  • Beautiful waterfall with “Silver” in the water. It’s a short hike from the road, about 1/8 mile. Parking is limited but if you come out early you may have to place to yourself like we did the second time we visited. Our dogs loved swimming at this spot.
