Quick stop when driving around Raleigh. Very pretty spot with a little beach. Downside is there is so much glass that you definitely shouldn't take off your shoes. My son enjoyed skipping rocks across the water.

This is one of Raleigh's best photo sites. The history and mill remain. You can climb down to the water's edge either near the dam or further downstream.

I'm not rating it excellent because there is nothing excellent about hurricane damage. I'm rating it excellent because of the amazing power of the water. If you go back and look at the old pictures you will see what the falls normally look like. The...More
