  • Relatively small waterfalls on the way between Franklin and Highlands in North Carolina surrounded by rocks and trees. You can see the falls directly from the road. There is no dedicated parking lot.....  more »
  • Found this one on the route from Highlands, NC to Cherokee. Stopped to take a look. Definitely know why its got its name. Be very careful if you are attempting to get closer to the falls or you...  more »

  • These falls make a great scenic stop right along the road. Easy access only feet from your car for great pictures. Or venture further and climb on the rocks and soak your feet or take a refreshing swim in the cold water ... all within 50-75 feet of the road. Liked it so much we had to come back 6 months later and will be back again.
  • This place is absolutely amazing. There are multiple scenic spots in this area but it's hard to beat this one. Not only is it an amazing place to go cliff jumping and diving at but it is also absolutely beautiful. There used to be a rope that you could use to cross the river to get up the hill to dive but it was disconnected from one side but you can easily cross from multiple points down river. There is also a spot about 200 feet before the water fall which has a small cave under one of the smaller waterfalls. Great place to spend the day at if you're passing through. I'd definitely give the cliff a try and take a plunge!
