These Falls are beautiful in October

We loved these falls and the walk was easy. The trails are marked and the foliage was so pretty. We got some beautiful photos here.

The Linville Falls is a easy walk / hike about a mile total and there are 3 overlooks outs to go see: Upper Falls Overlook, Chimney View Overlook, and Erwin View. I think the best views, closest to the water, best for photos and easiest to get to is the 1st one you will come to and see through the... More

We had the joy of being in this area during peak Fall Foliage. The river, the falls, the surrounding areas were magnificent! I suppose it helped that it was a week day, and not the weekend. Plan ahead, as there are few signs and few amenities along the Blue Ridge Parkway - and most of us nature lovers like it... More

bring your camera and sit a spell. The upper falls and chimney were awesome to sit and gaze at. Wear good shoes and bring water.

We walked the trail from the carpark and meandered along the river. It was interesting looking out for wildlife and fish. Tracks are well maintained and it is easy to set the time you want to walk and then return. A pleasant activity even in the drizzly rain.

We chose this area to picnic and let the children wade in the water. Everyone enjoyed the beauty of the river and surrounding scenery. Tables are provided and even the youngest can enjoy the water.
