Elk Falls: Vilas to Elk Falls is a 25 mile trail located near Banner Elk, NC that features a waterfall. The trail is primarily used for scenic driving and is accessible from April until October.
The mountain and ski communities around Banner Elk are wonderful, and I love driving and exploring this gorgeous area. It is a short walk to Elk River Falls...one of the prettiest waterfalls in the area.
Short walk to falls which are nice, but very few sings to get there and that's all that's there is, nothing else, waste of time.
very pretty falls. nice short hike to swim or fish.
Very short but pretty
Not really a hike. A short walk with one steep section that takes you to the falls and swimming hole which are the 5 star aspect.
