This is the rarely visited English Falls in Pisgah National Forest near the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is only about a 0.36 mile hike, however, it has some pretty technical vertical with ropes to assist. It is strongly recommend to only attempt this visit if you are confident in your abilities. Attempt this at your own risk. Dogs are allowed, but it's difficult to navigate the steep sections with a four legged friend. Show more

A short, relatively easy walk to a waterfall. The trail and falls are on private property, but the owners graciously allow public access.Show more
