If you're visiting the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains, it makes sense to take in a majestic mountain stream as it succumbs to the will of gravity. The short, well trodden trail won't test your children's attention span before reaching the main attraction. Enjoy the...More

Well if it was a US Park, it'd be free to us geezers with lifetime cards. But hey, the 5-dollar admission is fair compensation for the Tryon Garden Club's maintenance of a beautiful spot.
