We visited blowing rock recently and wanted to do a little exploring. We found out there was this trail right behind the downtown blowing rock area. It's about 1.5 miles in mostly downhill. Then 1.5 miles back mostly uphill. The trail was very narrow at certain point and somewhat muddy. I would say this is a moderate hiking trails with the uphills and rocks to get around. It was definitely worth visiting it was neat to be near the falls. You can hear the rushing water as you are walking and there are many points where you can view different points of the falls.
