“Beautiful waterfalls/ narrow trail”

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.

This was a good hike. Started easy and gradually got tougher as we went along. Walked to the bottom of the falls. Definately worth the trip, and free to boot.

Great hike in town to waterfalls. A little tough on the way back out but well worth it. Right along the river the entire way.

A beautiful 3.2 mile round trip hike in Blowing Rock. Trail runs along the river most of the way. Gorgeous falls with overlooks from above and below. Almost all downhill on the way in, uphill on the way out.
