  • This was a wonderful surprise. No hiking to get to this falls. BEautiful! Well worth the drive (even though not long) Check it out.  more »
  • It's worth the drive to this falls no cell phone service that high in the mountains but a beautiful view  more »
  • We stopped here for lunch on our motorcycle tour of the Cherohala Skyway. I couple of miles out of the way but well worth the time to stop.  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.
  • It's very fun to play in. The views are great and, there are good hiking trails.
  • 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.
