Catawba Falls Trail is a 2.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Old Fort, NC that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Easy hike, but I can see how it gets pretty muddy after rain. The falls are slightly obstructed by growth and rocks, but you can get multiple perspectives if you climb around a bit.
This one was almost too easy, but it was really cool and the falls at the end were fantastic. Tucked not too far off of 40 in Old Fort, this was an easy stop on our trip.
It's the perfect easy to moderate hike. Great for beginners or those of us that haven't hiked in a while.
One of my favorite waterfalls in WNC. The trail is pretty gentle for the majority of the hike with a couple stream crossings and a mini scramble or two over a few rocks. From the base of Lower Falls to Upper Falls is tricky. Not to be hiked in wet weather. The falls themselves are gorgeous.
We took two adventurous dogs to the upper falls and thoroughly enjoyed it! Lots of fun! Recommend!
Fun trail. Not too hard. Last little section of trail is pretty steep and rocky, but well worth it!
Very straightforward until you get to the base! Loved scrambling up to the top of the falls. Would rate as easy-moderate. Very pleasant!
Getting to the top falls is not for the faint of heart but definitely worth it.
One of my utmost favorites, great swimming holes, kids love it, the falls looks amazing and different every season. In summer, when the rains haven't come yet, you can see the falls almost at a trickle. Amazingly beautiful
This is a very moderate trail and well worth the walk to see the falls. There are a few spots along the way to cool down in the river in small pools. Great for young children too.
Great! but sooo muddy, make sure to wear waterproof shoes.
