Linville Falls - Plunge Basin Trail is a 1.9 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Linville Falls, NC that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
An old favorite. Much less busy than Erwin's view or the upper falls overlook, and much more peaceful. Can be strenuous coming back up but it's definitely worth the hike to be so close to the falls.
