  • Nice waterfall..water level is very low this year (nov 2016) so the flow was weaker than normal...still a great falls in the fall and spring time..easy hike
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
