We took the Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville up to the falls. We didn't realize that once you're on the parkway, you're basically stuck for quite awhile before you can get off. All while white knuckle driving alongside a mountain at 35 mph.

Enjoyed hiking here with my daughter (9) and my wife. Arrived early and enjoyed a peaceful hike to the falls. This trail will take you first to the top of Linville Falls.There are also two smaller waterfalls just before the main falls. Really neat to see the water tear through the rocks leading up to the waterfall. Backtrack a little... More

Had a great day at Linville Falls and Linville Gorge today. It was an easy hike with my dogs and had beautiful views. I've been in Boone for three months and have kept meaning to get here. So glad I made the trip today. The sights from Wiseman view made it feel like I was on top of the world!

This is a must see. The falls and rock formations are beautiful! Be prepared to walk though; We probably walked over 2 miles. Well worth the trip.

I have seen countless waterfalls around NC and SC. It has been a hobby of mine for years. Linville falls are probably the most famous in NC and it is a very pretty place, but they are the scariest falls I have ever been to. I have eaten picnics on rocks at the tops of 100 foot falls without railings... More

The falls were beautiful and the hike fairly easy. Our kids (5 of them 8 and under) had a blast! I can only imagine how beautiful this spot is in the fall!!

We took an early morning walk up and dutifully photographed the waterfall which is pretty rather than high.

This trail is not as hard as I originally expected. But the view was far more beautiful than anything I could have imagined by looking at pictures. There is several different places to enjoy multiple angle views of the falls along the trail. This is one if the best waterfalls I have ever seen, you must check this one out... More
