  • 13 motorcycles went to Pearson's Falls on a beautiful June Saturday. After parking our bikes we hiked the 1/4 mile up to the falls. What a surprise! The falls were beautiful (Thanks to the rains we've...  more »
  • Nice short hike. Not hard, pretty forest and waterfall. This is no giant waterfall or spectacular vista. It is what it is, a nice short hike to a typical waterfall in the North Carolina Mtns. Well mai...  more »
  • Loved this little hike with the kids. We could have stayed there all day. The breeze was refreshing & the views were magical!  more »
  • A super nice place to hike. Easy upward hike along the stream to the falls. Usually quiet and cool. I come here several times each year. Clean bathrooms. Lots of benches and picnic area. $10 entrance fee benefits the local garden club. We'll worth it.
  • A friend of mine lives near hear and took us in mid April. Really awesome thing they have going here. I'm a history buff and they have gone out of their way to preserve the natural beauty and historical intention of this area. Nice short hike. Not too strenuous but there are lots of rocks and you need to be aware of your surroundings. Ware good shoes or boots and be able to climb the equivalent of ten stories worth of stars. $5 per person for the day that goes to the nonprofit that runs it. Great spot to bring a picnic lunch, no grills but plenty of tables. There is one bathroom at the trail head
  • The most beautiful hiking trail and waterfall I have ever seen.. So far! Its so incredible! The hiking trail is filled with BEAUTIFUL scenery and greenery! Its breathtaking! Beautiful walking paths, old bridges and steps naturally formed out of stone in some areas!
  • Worth the trip. It's a short hike that's great for families (including small children). There are a a lot of steps, so you'll want to wear the children who are not able to navigate steps. My only complaint is the lack of ability to play in the creek.
  • This beautiful water fall is just a short hike from the parking area. Easily accessible for small children and kids. I wouldn't call it easily mechanical wheelchair accessible but I think it's possible. The trail is well kept but there are a few areas where a wheelchair may need 2 adults to assist. With an inexpensive entry fee I think might be worth a try. The trail can be quickly walked to access the maneuverability of a wheelchair by a helper. I would not recommend a electronic wheelchair or a mobility scooter.
