  • What a beautiful spot! A friend suggested I stop here on the way to her home in the Nantahala mountains.. It was beautiful and peaceful... Worth packing a picnic and eating it here. 
  • Beautiful waterfall and river, this is an amazing quiet and beautiful natural area to sit and relax and recharge yourself. 
  • Decided to take a ride off the Cherohala Skyway and ended up seeing the falls. What a quiet and serene area. Enjoyed it thoroughly. 
  • Easy access to a full-on view of a spectacular waterfall. Drive over the bridge and park in one of the 15, or so, parking slots on the right. Walk back onto the bridge for some memorable views. Be wary of the auto traffic as you snap your pictures (Safety First) Heads up: The parking slots stay full during peak seasons making for a highly congested area.
  • Truly Spectacular and worth the trip! There's places to park, and a bridge to give you an awesome view and experience! The more adventurous can go swimming in the different pools... the big one at the bottom of course, and the others after a little climb! A MUST See if you're ever in the area. Enjoy! :)
  • Small, easy to get lost when gps won't work. That was stressful especially since it was dark. Ha ha. VERY narrow roadways and VERY curvy. Pretty tho.
  • Went there a few months ago it's just as beautiful as I remembered from previous trips. I live about 5 miles from there will definitely go back
  • We take the detour on our motorcycle trips. A nice break to get off the bikes and stretch our legs. If you are not beginner riders, take Turkey Creek Road (WhiteOak Flat Rd?) back to Cherohala.
