All the waterfall hikes are fairly easy and each waterfall stop is breathe taking. There is no entrance fee. The fall is amazing as all the leaves are turning! Good for families.

I wasn't sure I would be up to the hike to the three Linville Falls viewing areas, but the hike is not THAT strenuous and is certainly worth the trip on each and every location. The falls are incredibly beautiful and the sound of rushing...More
