  • Stopped off to visit soco falls while in the area, not much time needed, 10-15 mins, wouldn't go out of the way to visit but ok if passing. 
  • It's right off the road, but you have to walk down/climb down to it, which is pretty fun on its own. Then you get to the beautiful waterfall. You can play in the stream, etc. Worth a visit!! 
  • If you're not careful, you will completely miss this beautiful falls on Soco Road/Hwy 19 west of Maggie Valley. I recommend that you wear good hiking shoes or shoes with a good treat because you have ...  read more »
  • Awesome set of twin waterfalls on US-19 just off the Blue Ridge Parkway! There is a gravel parking area on a curve in the road for access. Although the waterfalls are just off the road, there is a very steep decent down to the bottom. There is a viewing platform higher up that is less of a climb down, but if you want to get the best views, down the hill you need to go. The trail down is extremely steep but they do provide ropes to grab on to for balance. I would not recommend going here after rain as it will be very muddy and slippery considering how steep the short trail is. However, if you can make the trek down, the view is absolutely amazing and is definitely worth the effort.
  • Really cool falls, close to road, easy to miss. Small sign visible headed from Cherokee towards Maggie Valley, not the other way. Just a pullover gravel area by fence. Not easy to get down to for very young or old, ropes available to help balance.
  • Worth the stop if you are in the area. The walk up and down is steep. The view is nice from the mid-level. Going to the bottom is fir the more athletic...ropes to the bottom.
  • Beautiful double falls. Small parking area with overflow up mountain. Very quick and moderately steep trail to the platform. Even steeper and shorter path to the bottom with some assistance lines.
  • Quick trip to a waterfall on the way to Gatlinburg really enjoyed it
