      One of the most popular and easily accessible waterfalls along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Views of the falls require a moderate half mile hike. There are two trails. Hikers who cross the river get elevated views of the falls, while those who stay on the same side as the visitors center will walk to the river below the falls.

      If you go:
      There is a visitors center as well as a campground with sites for tents and RVs. The falls can also be reached from a trailhead located on National Forest lands from NC-183.
