NC Hikes Map

A short but gorgeous hike. Most if it is uphill and very slippery so shoes with good grip are a necessity. The fall at the very top has a great swimming hole with gorgeous clean mountain water. 10/10

Wonderful hike and place to sit and relax. Because it had been so rainy the days before, water volume was way up and we had the place to ourselves.

Wife and I enjoyed the hike. Saw a few people stop at the false summit. So be mindful of it as you will have to cross water. So wear boots, or water shoes!!

Dogs had fun hiking although there were a few not so friendly pups on the trail. Happy we decided to do this easy trail.

Very easy trail to see a beautiful waterfall. Dog friendly on leash.

Short hike but has some steep uphill incline. Beautiful falls and area to hang out.

awesome!!I would do it again!!

Fairly easy trail. It is unique and has a very good view of the surrounding area.

Moderate but short hike. Get to see some nice rock features and water falls. Very fun to explore through the rocks and find new spots.

Well worth the hike up the mountain to see these pretty falls and nice swimming hole

What a lovely place, a leisurely walk round trip about 2 miles, an easy trail with access to the river, bridges and at the end an incredible tall waterfall.

Easy, lush, short hike to the falls which is actually more stunning than I had anticipated. Lots of pretty water spots along the way. Beautiful blue butterflies right now. Saw lots of kiddos on this hike too. Very short drive off the I-40. Definitely worth it!

One of my favorite trails in Asheville. The upper falls is a blast but do not go if it had been raining because the last bit of the trail gets very slippery. Lower falls is fun and the upper falls is a great extra challenge!

Very dog friendly and great views!

absolutely beautiful views. Well worth the hike! A must see

Gorgeous views. Seems as though it gets more crowded each time we go. I recommend going early during the week :-)

Beautiful right before sunset!

Little piece of heaven

Great trail and you can even climb to the top of the falls

Great moderate hike to a beautiful waterfall. The swimming pool at the base is deep and cold! We then hiked down the creek for some fly fishing. Got bites from some nice sized trout!

Such a wonderful hike with our kids! We loved getting our feet in the water and hiking down many little waterfalls along the way. A beautiful trail. We had two toddler and a 1st grader with us. Great for us all. Definitely harder once you pass the main waterfall though — that was better for me and the 1st grader. We will be back again, Lord willing!

Nice trail, good distance for some exercise without being long. Mostly gravel so fairly easy to avoid muddy or wet spots, although there are some. Waterfall is beautiful. Beware yellow jackets in warm months. We saw a lot of them and someone in our group stepped on a nest and the sting was not fun. A couple of somewhat steep parts but nothing too difficult. My kids enjoyed it.

Excellent hiking trail when it's dry. Be careful if it has rained recently. One of the most beautiful falls we've seen in the area.

Easy in and out. My dog loves the stream crossings.

Lovely little hike to some great falls

Beautiful trail and waterfall. Almost a botanic garden appearance.

The drive there was beautiful! I will say you go up a steep curvy road to get to it. Not a lot of parking but we did not have an issue. The hike was amazing! it wasn't necessarily easy, but it always wasnt difficult. I'm not the most in shape person and coming back from the falls you have some incline to go up. Word of advice, take a picture of the map in the parking lot. The trail is nicely marked if you know what color of trail to do. I'll definitly be coming back to this one! You do red, blue, then orange I do believe. The yellow trail is super small but pretty.

Challenging trail, lots of rocks and roots. We got to Mount Mitchell and the observation deck but it was too cloudy to see anything! Then it started raining. Check the weather carefully before you start this hike!

Beautiful and easy enough even for moderately out of shape folks like me.
