well-cleared trail. well drained despite rain. Good for families. Lots of stairs, so easy to moderate at least. no e views. Bring the puppers.

Extremely easy walk. Not sure why this and the Linville Falls Trail isn’t together. Probably won’t do this one again.

The drive there is beautiful. The parking lot is big! They have a little gift shop and restrooms. Very busy place! The path is wide and has 3 spots to visits. Make sure to walk all 3 because you dont want to miss anything.

WAY too many tourist, not a “hikers” hike, very easy. Pet friendly, and cool views though. The waterfall is gorgeous. Try and find your way to the bottom!

Gets steep at the end but going all the way to the highest, farthest viewpoint is worth it, especially since you can check out every viewpoint along the way.

Easy trail, pretty views! I recommend going to the lower falls, but also up to the overlook where you can see the big waterfall from afar. It's breathtaking!
