We fully intended on hiking into the gorge, unfortunately I had a hiking injury a few days prior. So, I can't really speak for the lower trails. We took all of the trails for an upper vantage point of the falls. In all honesty the lower trail is the only one worth taking. The other two higher up trails aren't... More

An easy beautiful walk up to waterfalls and great views of the Gorge. There are several places from which to enjoy lovely perspectives of the surrounding mountains. Uneven terrain but easy. Pet friendly. Fun even in the rain

Breathtaking views. We always find falls to hike to in these mountains but these are one of the best to see. The hike isn't all that bad and around every corner their is another great view. There are no bathrooms on this side of the Gorge. The entrance on the the Blue Ridge does have bathrooms

We stumbled upon this on our first trip to Boone. My son and I journeyed up to the second outlook but were not prepared for the hike. We definitely plan to come back and do it all the next time! Great photo ops! So beautiful! First trail is pretty easy and gets harder the farther up you go....

We had a great time at Linville Falls yesterday! The lower falls hike is pretty easy and so worth the drive to get there. I had our 15 mo old in the baby carrier & didn't have any problems making the hike. After seeing the lower falls, my husband stayed behind with the baby and I hiked up to the... More

The lower falls is able to be done with small children (2-5). Our 2 year old absolutely loved the rocks and seeing the water. Of course carrying him back up the trail was some great exercise. Beautiful sight...worth the stop!

Beautiful views, accessible with relatively brief and moderate hikes. A must see while in the NC Mountains!

We hiked the .5 miles to the lower falls area. And also hiked the 2 miles to the top and down the upper overlook. The .5 mile hike was very easy. The other more strenuous. My 5 year old did both though also.
