Fantastic Waterfall after a short walk
Jul 2021
Have a vacation home in Western NC and have spent the last 13 summers there. Lots of hiking, motorcycle riding etc in and around Pisgah National forest, DuPont state park and around South Carolina. Probably visited 50 + waterfalls in our immediate area. Pearson’s Falls is one of the most beautiful and spectacular. If you’re looking for a hike, this isn’t it. Its well manicured path is short, easy and fine for any age. But if you are looking for a waterfall, 😎.

Short Hike to Beautiful Falls
Jul 2021 • Couples
My best friend and her husband were visiting from Alabama and had planned to meet my husband and I in Saluda for tubing on the Green River, but Mother Nature nixed that plan. We decided to explore Pearson’s Falls and were pleasantly surprised. It’s a relatively easy walk on a well-maintained trail, and the falls are beautiful. Because it was still a little overcast, there were not many people around at the time so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I can imagine it is even more beautiful when the flowers are in bloom. It’s definitely a hidden gem. The photos do not do it justice!!!

Great family waterfall!

Pearson's falls is at the end of an easy, relatively short, well maintained trail outside of Saluda. Highly recommended for beauty and ease of access!

Not worth the trip

Nice hike but too short of an experience.
Wildflower garden not marked and when I asked the attendant showed us and told us the garden varieties.

Seniors: Don't be afraid to hike in
Jun 2021
Wait for a sunny dry day; drive to the parking lot; hike in. Only a 1/4 mile to the falls - a bit strenuous, yet very doable. Beautiful scenery all along the way; and when you reach the falls: magnificent!

Wow! Must see!

My Daughter and I visited a couple waterfalls but this was our favorite! It isn’t the biggest but it is impressive and there are benches that allow you to sit not far away from the waterfall and really appreciate and enjoy!! Totally worth $5 per adult to keep this place going - it’s maintained by a garden club for many years!

Beautiful waterfall, easy hike
May 2021 • Couples
I love to photograph waterfalls that are easy to get to as I can’t do long hikes. This one was perfect, there is a small entrance fee of $5 per person but was well worth it. We brought a picnic lunch and found a nice table right by the stream. It was an easy walk to the falls, there are some tree roots to look out for. It was under a mile round trip. There were not many people there on a Monday. They do have a bathroom to use with running water but not a flushing toilet if ya know what I mean.

LOVED this experience!
Apr 2021 • Family
We were driving from Savannah to Gatlinburg and found this a perfect spot to stretch our legs! The staff was very friendly & fee was very low considering this is privately owned.

Bathrooms = clean & nicer than state parks
Trail = natural with some wood chips & stones, benches for resting along the way
Distance = perfect for young families or 65+
Falls = beautiful & not crowded, railing near the water for safety

My son (8) said he wanted to tip the staff bc it was the best/nicest place! Our kids just hiked Laurell falls in Gatlinburg and immediately said they would go back to Pearson falls!

During our visit we also went to the White Duck for tacos & the Elijah Gem mine .. it was a great visit without too many people!

Easy hike with maintained trail along the water
Nov 2020
Easy hike with maintained trail along the water. There were several places to stop, sit and rest along the way. Some steps with on the higher side for those with mobility issues. The waterfall was beautiful and hemlocks are abundant.
