Went from Ashville, N.C. to Brevard, N.C. on a lark. It turned out to be the highpoint of the vacation. The waterfalls were pristine, well supervied and fun. Brevard is a wonderful vacation town with the summer music festival exceptionally delightful. Outstanding experience.

It is about a 30 minute hike from the parking area, which is limited. It is a narrow falls area but bends so it gives space for many people due to length. People jump from the rock overhang just before the bend. The water is...More

Parking is limited, nice swimming hole and layered waterfall with many spots if crowded, our Bernese mountain dog had no problem with the hike and there were smaller dogs there also

Parking is limited. Be sure to wear tennis shoes/sneakers. Preferably not flip flops as others we encountered did. The water was chilly at first but I wanted to get in. Beautiful area, worth the drive.

The parking area is limited so we kept going and stopped on our way back, later in the afternoon. The hike was pretty easy. Water was cold and had a place that you could jump off into a deep pool. Lots of room to climb...More

We went to the skinny dip falls on Mothers day. 1/2 mile hike in. Not to difficult. Water was pristine and cool. There is a rock you can jump from on the other side of the footbridge. Very deep water there and probably a 15-20...More

The hike to this waterfall involves quite a bit of up and down, but the falls is very pretty. Once you get there, you can view it from several viewpoints, and can even get in the water.
