  • Our family trip each fall is to the NC mountains. We always enjoy a nice relaxing hike to a waterfall. This year with our Kids and grandkids we decided to try Pearson Falls. We totally loved it...  more »
  • Great way to avoid the heat and enjoy nature. You also support the local gardening club. We thought it was worth a visit as the last time we were in the area it was closed.  more »

  • This was one of the nicest waterfalls we hiked to in the area. It was a moderate hike and very scenic . Take a lunch along , there are places to sit and eat and take in the incredible view. We had a hard time tearing ourselves away from the 90 ft waterfall. It was raining and we didn’t want to leave. You do have to pay to get into the park but it’s worth it.
  • Super clean trailb hike to the falls. It's a local group that keeps it so it'll cost you five bucks to get in. Check the website. The falls are great and you can sit and talk or take a few pics all asking the trail. Lots of good spots for photos.
