“Very Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We've seen a lot of waterfalls in the Asheville area, but this was one of the nicest. As others have noted, easy trail up to the main falls, but rocks along the way mean you need to watch your step, particularly coming down if the trail's a bit wet. The $5 per person admission is a bit steep, considering that the Asheville Arboretum is only $8 for a carload, and it's a way larger and more elaborate. This place is more like a peaceful glade. There are a number of picnic tables throughout. Port-a-potty was clean and typically smelly.

“Amazing, but be careful :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is well worth the $5 per person to visit. So beautiful. The rocks do get slippery and the walk up is fine, The trip down can be tricky. I did slip half way down and sprang my ankle. So be careful. But I am so glad we went and will most certainly go back soon.

“Beautiful falls in beautiful NC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Tryon is a nice friendly town. The Pearson's Falls was a unexpected pleasure the scenery is amazing. The hike was not hard but beware of slippery rocks.The trail is well maintained and the personal very welcoming. After a nice afternoon of hiking we stopped in Tryon for a pizza at the Red Brick Oven.

“Lovely Hike/Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We arrived the day after Labor Day weekend...perfect timing as the park was vacant. We had a beautiful walk up to the top of the falls and back again. It is an easy hike, but do wear closed toe shoes as there are some poison ivy plants around. The water was running well and the falls were beautiful, but I would not want to visit on a crowded day.
