Linville Gorge -- often called The Grand Canyon of the Southeast -- is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. Linville Gorge Wilderness encompasses the wild backcountry on either side of the Linville River, which carved the Gorge over millions of years. Trails in the gorge are rugged -- bring your hiking poles if you use them.

pretty views and super easy walk in. great place to go to see the brown mountain lights!

Very scenic hike. Steady elevation climb...but the switchback views help for breaks if needed. Trail is very rocky so I wore my boots. The view from the top is amazing. Stayed up there for over a half hour and barely got to cover it all.

Great for the family just to many people for me

Wonderful hike with great swimming and climbing spots everywhere with pretty flowers in the spring. Hike down is easy, but back up can be hard. Beautiful spot with a little view as well early on. Saw a couple of snakes, bees, birds, squirrels, crawfish, fish, and chipmunks.

Beautiful & it's pretty easy. Not for the elderly. Our dog loved swimming there!

Beautiful waterfall! We didn't follow the trail exactly and climbed down to view the full waterfall and up a little to the baby waterfalls and it was so fun! Water was cold but still took some time to explore!
