Elk River Falls Reviews
The reason I give this only 2 stars is not because it’s not gorgeous - it’s truly magnificent. The reason is the condition I found the area. Remember the 1970’s pollution commercial with the crying Na... more »
We checked the falls out late one evening. It was very much worth the little bit of a drive down the jacked up country road to get there. That was just a part of the adventure! Beautiful area! more »
Easy walk to the falls. No barriers so keep a close eye on small children. Many people have died jumping from the falls, don't do it! Take water shoes and swim suit for a fun day of swimming in the ri... more »
Nice place I Came from Riyadh The Capital of SAUDI ARABIA I Spent a day in This Lovely Water Fall I Tray to Swim but it was Cold For me. I Stay in a cabin in Roan mountain. I will Definitely come back again.
We enjoyed every minute spent by the waterfall. Its so peaceful and the kids didn't mind the clear cold water. We saw trout coming down the waterfall. A bit off climbing but well worth it. Very clean place!!!! Take your camera and capture the beauty.
It was an amazing hike. I came with the in laws and we all had fun. The water was quite cold, but there was plenty of open area for swimming. There were a few snakes to watch out for, but nothing too serious. I will definitely go back again!
Awesome experience. Easy hike, relatively short distance. Great sitting and relaxing area around the falls where the lagoon is. In addition, the road leading to the small parking area has a nice feel to it as you pass by the homesteads tucked away. Well worth the trip.
It was a beautiful hike to where you can sit on the rocks, however you feel like you can fall off the narrow path the whole hike. Very very scary. The view once there is worth it (even there was human poop at the entrance). The hike is a little scary, just be very careful and DONT let your children shove past other people trying to hike to or from the falls.
