  • There is a short hike up to the viewing area but its paved and well maintained. There are a lot of stairs that go down to another viewing platform that are again well take care of. It won't be a long ...  more »
  • They were closed due to a recent fire. Was looking forward to this visit. So sad for the fire and was told it had burn some of the observation deck. Hope to visit again when restored! 
  • This waterfall is one of the most beautiful of all the falls I have visited this year. It is easy to walk to from the parking area but does take quite a bit of stamina to walk down the huge staircase ...  more »

  • The water fall was easy to get to, if you could walk without issues. I was sad for older people that could not make the incline. If you want to go, but get winded walking up hill, or need assistance walking, take a wheel chair and somebody strong to push you. They have about 3 or 4 benches along the paved walkway. There are steps at the end of the walkway. But, you can see some of the waterfall from the end of the paved walkway.
  • Awesome Place kids loved it I loved it recommend
  • Don't forget to add this to your tour of western NC's waterfalls. The park is wheelchair accessible, however views of the falls itself, are not. There are lots of steps to the viewing area, but it's worth the effort.
  • Beautiful views well worth the short hike.
  • Beautiful waterfall. I definitely recommend hiking down to the base. A lot of switch backs, but it's a good little hike.
