Only 1/4th of a mile from the parking lot to the river, be prepared it is a bit steep in areas. No restrooms, no trash cans, no benches along the trail.

The Linville River with Upper Falls were our favorite. Peaceful and so beautiful in an area of endless beauty.

We walked 3 trails. Maybe 1 1/2 hours. Beautiful scenery including waterfalls. Most shaded so not scorching hot. 3 year old and 11 year old did great...just worn out. Kid friendly....just be careful at the overlooks and tree roots on the paths.

We had the joy of being in this area during peak Fall Foliage. The river, the falls, the surrounding areas were magnificent! I suppose it helped that it was a week day, and not the weekend. Plan ahead, as there are few signs and few...More

bring your camera and sit a spell. The upper falls and chimney were awesome to sit and gaze at. Wear good shoes and bring water.
