I spent a few hours hiking in the park with my young son and we had a lot of fun. To help keep my son engaged and entertained during our hike, I found an interesting iPhone app called "Git Your Goat." It lets you create a lot of goats along the trail and when you reach the spot with a... More

An absolutely stunning view of an amazing waterfall. Walk behind the falls to experience the cool misty water splashing on the rocks.

Dry Falls is not to be missed. We saw a lot of waterfalls during our trip to this area but Dry Falls was by far the most spectacular. There is a viewing platform right by the parking area and a short trail that takes you down for a closer experience of the falls. You can walk behind the falls and... More

If you are anywhere near you have to go see these falls. The walk down the concrete walk is not hard. Once you get to the bottom the walk behind the falls was worth the walk. The area is beautiful. The walk down is not handicapped accessible, but there is a viewing platform up top that is. Nice parking area... More

Dry Falls never ceases to amaze me; with different amounts of water from the recent rains or not so recent,

North Carolina has done an excellent job on this site. The highways in the mountains are winding and the views are beautiful for the passengers, but here you can pull off to ample parking area with paved review areas and paved steps and paths to behind the waterfalls if you desire. There are areas at street level to view the... More

Really an experience of walking behind a waterfall. The walkway has been completely re-done from our first visit. It is much easier to get down to and to get back up now. When the sun is 'just right' there is a beautiful rainbow visable. One of the other visitors was telling us that during the "Super Moon" there was a... More
