  • We stoped here on our way to Lake Lure. There was a $5 per person fee - well worth it! The Park Ranger was very friendly and the bathroom facilities were very clean (no smell in a composting bathroom!...  more »
  • Loved it! Not a paved walk way. Stones and Tree roots but worth the walk. Benches along the way to rest. Picnic tables for snack time or lunch.  more »
  • Pearson's Falls is a well-known local attraction, but doesn't get a lot of attention from outsiders. Nice hike to the falls.  more »

  • 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.
  • Nice place for a short hike. Beautiful falls are easily accessible. Friendly staff.
  • Just a warning google gps will take you past the entrance. It was very nice and easy to walk too. Admission was $5 adult and $1 for kids. My only disappointment was they did not want you to go in water but when u leave there, thier are a lot of pull off spot where you can play in water.
  • This is a gorgeous waterfall with exceptionally easy access. It is on private property, so you'll need bring along $5 in cash to pay for access. The trail is about a quarter of a mile, but is very well marked and not difficult my just about any standard. I have been several times and have always enjoyed it. To get there, turn down Pearson Falls Road (dirt road before Wildflour Bakery) and drive until you see the sign on right-hand side of the road. I would definitely recommend stopping here if you are in Saluda or surrounding areas. Enjoy!!
  • It is a short walk to get to the falls. I enjoyed the stone pathways and bridge. The waterfall is impressive but you are not allowed to get close.
