The waterfalls are breathtaking. The hike for me was a little much since I have breathing problems,but otherwise, it was great getting back to nature. The people in the visitor center were very cordial and we talked a good bit. Please take the time and enjoy what nature has to offer if you are in the are, believe me, you won't regret it!

As the title suggests, what I didn't know, the information / bookstore folks sure did a great job of educating me (a feat in itself) about not only the Linville Falls area, but also things to see and do in that corner of the mountains! Even though the visitor center was mobbed, the staff treated us (and many other people) with the utmost courtesy and respect. One more item, Eastern National Park and Monument Assoc. (a non-profit organization that funds various Park Service educational and interpretive programs) had a great selection of books, trail maps, ect.. for sale. Overall, was impressed by everything about our visit to Linville Falls.

This was the third time my wife and I have visited Linville Falls. It is a gorgeous waterfall. You are able to see it from the top, the side, and from straight on from a wonder overlook. The hike is rated moderate which is a fairly accurate description. Make sure you go all the way to Erwin's View. It is well worth the extra hike. We also had an extra treat at Erwin's View when a young man proposed to his sweetheart with the waterfall in the background. God's best to them in all they do in the future!

Linville Falls was a nice place to visit during good weather.
And it is FREE!
It's off the Blue Ridge Parkway. You have to hike a mile or more back to the falls from the visitor center on a wide gravel and stone pathway. Better to wear tennis shoes, not flip flops. But it is not a hard walk to do. (Not good for strollers or wheelchairs though!)
Pretty area and you can get some nice photos.
