Highlands - best waterfalls
May 2021 • Couples
Another excellent waterfall hike in southwestern North Carolina. This is a short drive out of town and well worth it. A fairly easy hike, not extremely muddy as other spots can be, and 3 gorgeous falls.

Nice hike to the falls. Downhill walk to - uphill back to vehicle. Multiple places to stop and view falls. Go as far down as your body will allow. 3rd stop is the best.

Great hike, gorgeous falls
Dec 2020
This is a moderate hike. I suffer degenerative disc decease and was able to walk it, but there are many many roots so watch your footing. The middle fall is tempting to climb out on, makes super great photo, BUT DON'T DO IT. People have died here. Enjoy the view. After the 3rd fall, the trail gets much more narrow, in some places no wider than the back of your hand. We followed it down to a small tributary, and it is a choir getting back up, but if you want a nice hike go on down. Coming up of course was a little harder but even an old crippled man could do it. GO FOR IT.

Shaded hike with three different waterfalls.
Nov 2020 • Couples
Followed the road back to this until we arrived at the dirt parking lot. We went during the week, but the lot was still almost full. The trail was well marked and we went down to the 3rd waterfall. Slightly more than a mile down, then all uphill heading back. As others mentioned there are lots of tree roots to avoid. Nice walk, shaded all the way.

Gorgeous hike

Multiple beautiful views of falls and rapids. During leaf change the colors were spectacular. The hike can be moderate to strenuous depending on how far down the trail you explore. Excellent hike.

Very pretty falls!

We enjoyed the climb down and didn’t think it was vigorous. We went during the week and it wasn’t crowded at all. A couple of great photo op places.

Favorite Hike in Highlands
Oct 2020
The best hike of our stay in Highlands! We enjoyed it so much that we hiked the trail twice. The waterfall views at the very end were so memorable. The path can get muddy after the rain, but we didn't mind it! Highly recommend!

Fantastic Falls near Highlands
Oct 2020
Wow - these Falls are so gorgeous!

The trail is a little difficult in some places because there are so many roots, it can be hard to find a flat spot for your feet. Lots of overlooks to admire the falls from all the way down. These waterfalls do not disappoint and are so close to Highlands. Very fun --highly recommend!
