“Gorgeous place to see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Its a very nice walk through the nature trail up to the falls. Take your camera, grab your sweetheart by the hand and go for a look.

“Historic Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Maintained by the Tryon Garden Club( members are affiliated with the National Garden Club). This is a privately funded jewel- the Glen is small but full of native plants seen no whereelse in the SouthEast.

loved this spot! Walk wasn't too stenuous and views were amazing! We wanted to visit the other side but it's private property and weren't allowed! :(

“Beauty and danger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Pearson Falls is a beautiful spot worth visiting. However, the rocks are slippery and visitors can't seem to resist climbing on them. During my lifetime there have been multiple deaths and serious injuries to visitors who attempt to climb on the falls or walk on the wet rocks. Please do not be foolish!!!

“Take all the trees, put 'em in a tree museum. Charge all the people. ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Five dollars just to see 'em . .. . .. there's something really troubling about paying five dollars to hike half a mile to a waterfall. It doesn't feel right to someone who's hiked waterfalls for free all over North Carolina. It feels weird. The waterfall is beautiful, and the hike is very clean. It's good that the waterfall watcher has work. It's worth doing once, but it's a Garden Club experience, with an absence of wildness and many, many other people traipsing to and fro.
