    Enjoyed our drive along the skyway. Discovered the falls about 12 miles in. A nice parking area and bridge to observe from. Wear good shoes if you plan on hiking or climbing the falls.  more »

    Beautiful waterfall! The area was busy but not very crowded. We hiked part of the Bald River Falls trail which originates at the end of the parking area. It stays close to the river and there are lovely views as you progress up the mountain.

    Went yesterday with my family. We all agreed unanimously that it was so beautiful and priceless. The scream out of the children's mouths when they cut their first glimpse was priceless and I am so glad and thankful that in the world today, they can still enjoy all that nature has to offer and see that there is so much beauty.

    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.

    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.
