We drove out here to hike and see the bridge. Just about everything else closes after Labor Day. It was a good hike and the bridge was neat but it wouldn't of cost anything to hike in the mountains. We did enjoy the cider tasting.

There is plenty of adventure here along with cider tasting and great BBQ. The falls climb is steep at times so if you are older and not in the best shape take breaks at the many benches they have. Watching the zip liners fly over...More

This was one of the most expensive activities we did. This set us back over $50. It is very beautiful and the swinging bridge was amazing. But this only included walking the bridge and the trails. I think it was very overpriced. Also the walk...More

It takes about an hour and a half. It’s a bit of a climb. Wear appropriate shoes. The falls are pretty. Good photo op. While walking you’ll see zip liners overhead. Some are upside down. At the end, try the BBQ. Very good !

It is really short. They say a half mile, but it is not quite that far. It is mostly uphill. I am over middle aged and had no problem with the hike. Don't expect "spectacular" falls. they are nice, just not very large.

If hubby is a typical red-blooded American male, I can see his aversion to shopping - been there, done that. But you didn't say what he DOES like, so here goes: Take him over to Bryson City and do the train up to Nantahala and back(Smokey Mtn. RR). If he's really an outdoor type, get the combo ticket and do the raft trip with it. Train takes you up, you raft, train brings you back. Get a fishing guide for him - for striper fishing at Norris or some of the streams in the park Little River...More
