Great way to avoid the heat and enjoy nature. You also support the local gardening club. We thought it was worth a visit as the last time we were in the area it was closed.

I have long wanted to see this place, and the few times that I’ve been in the area I’ve missed that because I got there either too late or I did not have time. We as a family decided to go there and make that our first stop. There are lots of things to do nearby and we decided that we would go apple picking in the afternoon. We packed a picnic lunch and hit the falls first. I have four very small children and I wanted to get them out. The trail is very well maintained, and easy to navigate. Because it had rained, and the leaves are falling, the trail can get a bit slippery in spots, but several elderly people and small children had no trouble navigating the scenic route to the falls. Ample benches along the way, and several tables near the beginning make this a great spot for a picnic lunch. There are lots of places to view the falls and the beautiful floor and fauna that cover the terrain. I highly recommend it! When we went, it was five dollars for each adult and I believe one dollar for children. This would be a great activity to do well on route to something else, whether it’s enjoying the charming little towns nearby or apple picking in one of the many beautiful orchards.

A most beautiful short hike back to the Falls. A little over a quarter of a mile. As you can see it’s beautiful. The path is very well marked with some elevation.

The "hike" to the falls is actually a lovely 1/2 mile walk (each way) with only a few areas of elevation to tackle. It would be appropriate for almost any age group. The falls themselves are spectacular. Because it is such an easy hike, the trail was quite heavily trafficked, even on a weekday, but people were very gracious and polite about maintaining physical distancing. There is a $5/person charge collected at the gate to enter the preserve, which is maintained by the Tryon Garden Club.

The $5 /adult entrance fee is well worth the visit. At the time of our visit, there were no working restrooms so plan accordingly. The entire hike and back to the waterfall can take about 1 to 1.5 h more or less depending on how many pictures you take. The hike is easy to moderate on a well shaded path. There are many areas to rest. The trail is clearly marked and there are many birds and flowers and trees to view. The waterfall is beautiful and drops amidst spectacular rock formations. It will not disappoint.
