We’ve enjoyed this beautiful waterfall on many fall leaf looking trips to NC. Just a very pretty spot especially with golden leaf colors around it. And no hike to see - right on highway - and no cost! If anywhere close try to see it!

If coming from the south, you will see cars parked as much as .3 miles away on the right in the form of a wide shoulder. There is a smaller area about .2 mile past. Be careful if you want walk to the bottom - the mist has everything wet so you have to be careful with the camera.

This waterfall is about a 45 minute drive or so from Asheville. My 7 year old daughter and took a break from the city to go check it out. It's just as beautiful as it was over 10 years ago when I last visited. Absolutely stunning with great volume in a tranquil setting. There's a platform above where those who are disabled, elderly, or very young can enjoy a great view just a short walk away from their vehicle. 2 sets of stairs links the upper viewing platform with the lower. You can also brave the rocks from down there but caution must be exercised. I saw multiple people slip. It was a warm day in early October so there was a pretty good crowd out. Definitely recommend this as an entry level "hike" where the payoff far exceeds the effort. Just be careful as the stairs can be slippery. Some people hiked a little bit downstream but the view doesn't change much unless you're doing photography.

This is probably one of the most gorgeous waterfalls in the NC mountains. You can see it very well from the road, there is also a viewing platform at the top for handicapped so it is ADA accessible as well. The stairs can be a bit strenuous for small children or adults with bad knees (like myself) but there is nothing like getting in that cold mountain water on a hot day!

This is a gorgeous place to visit (see the pictures - I don't need to tell you what you will see). The problem is the crowds and parking. We went on a Thursday morning on bad rainy day and we still had to park pretty far away and fight crowds to get down to the falls. I wouldn't even consider this on a weekend.
