Glen Alpine Falls reviews
Though much diminished from the picture in the June 2019 review by carolynf486, the falls are still beautiful in autumn. And the drive's not bad when there's not much traffic to contend with. Well..... more »
beyond Fallen Leaf Lake are a couple great waterfalls - first one is right on the road and second one is a short hike - road can be busy and require some pullouts but worth it more »
Beautiful place! The fall is really nice. The drive there is a little challenging but it’s well worth it. Beautiful falls and great views. It gets a little rocky once you are down there and you have to be very careful. But it’s well worth it. The views are amazing and the water is really cold. You will not want to leave.
We were concerned at first by the reviews on the dangerous cliffs. Not only were they easy for us (9 year-old included) to navigate but the waterfall and surroundings were stunningly beautiful. We went in August and it wasn’t too cold to swim the pools along the cascade.
