  • Great place for families, visitor center was amazing, waterfalls were pretty nice, We did Hanging Rock trail, well laid out and marked.  more »
  • Like to see this park when there are less leaves on the trees, so as to better appreciate the waterfalls and rock formations. We've been here both in the spring and fall for Saturday picnics and have ...  more »

  • Amazing views out in these Carolina mountains, been here about a dozen times. There's also a short and simple chimney climb, as long as you can scissor climb, you'll be fine.. been doing on every visit since I was nine. Folks are friendly and the staff are understanding, I would highly recommend for anyone and everyone ❤
  • Staff was great and very helpful. Beautiful views from observation area but there are no trail heads at that location. Within a few miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway there are some great trails to include the Simms Pond trail which has a 2.4 mile trail and a 4.3 mile trail. Great time.
  • My Family has enjoy Ed Hanging Rock beauty and hiking for many years. We have camped and stayed in the rental cabins for several years. It is a perfect place for enjoying the beautiful outdoors and hiking. Highly recommend!!
  • Beautiful spot! Pond at the bottom has salamanders, trails are well kept, and the views at the top are spectacular. Definitely worth the trip just make sure you find the bathroom before you start the hiking because there isn't a bathroom at the top.
  • The climb up to the hanging rock is a moderate hike. Dog friendly! It has got good spots for a hammock ! The other trails for falls have good picnic spots! Love it!
