Tory's Falls, also called Tory Falls and Torys Falls is a waterfall in North Central North Carolina, located in Hanging Rock State Park in Stokes County.
The falls are located near an area called "Tory's Den", a cave that was purportedly used by Tories during the American Revolution.
The falls are open to the public and are accessible beginning at a parking area on the side of Charley Young Road. Visitors may take a moderate-difficulty 300 yard (275m) trail to the falls. It is difficult to see the entire falls from any one location, and the water source occasionally dries up to a trickle.

  • Fascinating place with a fascinating history. Very peaceful hike off of the beaten path. The falls are beautiful, when its not dried up. The cave isn't much of a cave, but its still interesting. Besides, thats the way nature made it.
  • .2 mile path, very short, last half is stairs. We made it down relatively quickly with a five, there, and one year old. Getting out on the rock to see the small falls which was running slow when we saw it, was with some caution as there was a drop off. If you are checking locations off your list, make sure you see it, but then head to Cascade Falls down the road, very clear and cool water for kids to play in.
  • This place sucked and was a waste of time. Literally the smallest waterfall I've seen and the cave was even small. So many other sites to see around Hanging Rock...this one totally sucked
