  • Nice area for a stroll or good hike and the falls just add to the enjoyment. The falls were rather small during our visit because of an extended drought. The river is very pretty as you see parts of i...  more »

  • Because of the drought, there is water only on the left 1/3 of the falls. I have been here when water is crashing over these falls but inspite of the lack of rain, there is water and it is fun to take...  more »

  • Wonderful little waterfall when there has been plenty of rain for the season. Even during the dry months or droughts, it still looks pretty. Some great primitive campgrounds on North River Road just to the north/west a few miles down the road.
  • Hard to find becase the Rangers in Cherokee National Forest have not posted useable direction signs. A few good signs would have been appreciated. Beautiful falls however.
  • Small, easy to get lost when gps won't work. GPS won't function that far out. That was stressful especially since it was dark. Ha ha. VERY narrow roadways and VERY curvy. Pretty tho.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely amazing pictures. Swimming is FANTASTIC when temps are at or near 100. There is something about swimming in the water fresh out of the mountains. Take a small car for the road out and parking. No modern style bathrooms out there.
