These are very nice falls! I would recommend going right after a good rain to watch them roar. The steps down may be slippery. Please keep children off the rocks and away from the water when it is roaring from the rain!

A beautiful waterfall that is a must see if driving through Pisgah. The falls are easily viewable from the road, but you can also walk down a few sets of stairs to the river at the base of the falls.

Not a hike, pull off with a few steps to the base of the falls. Still, sooo worth the stop!

this is a must to do. a great roadside waterfall. only a few minutes to walk to the bottom for a nice dip or to get some great photos. i went late September when school was back in. i would assume all summer there would be a lot of people. still a must see and cant under stand why anybody would give this fall less than 5 stars

This is more of a road side stop than a trail. Easy to get to and worth the stop on the way to Brevard.

Awesome waterfall, but because of it's proximity to the road, it's super busy. A must-see if you're in the area, though!

While it was amazing to see the fact that they made it so easily accessible takes away from its beauty. Way to many people there simply to observe nature rather then be apart of it. Trash spread all along the walk and the people nowhere near as considerate or friendly as people encountered on less accessible trails Will not likely return but definitely worth seeing Five stars for the waterfall none for the experience

Awesome fun. Beautiful falls and lots of fun. Some small jumps into the deep areas. Good for paddling, wading and even trying to swim into the falls. Recommend for all ages. Can get very busy during summer and obviously weekends. Water is about 60 degrees in July, feels great when hot out.

Beautiful water fall. But it's not much of a hike or walk at all. More like a tourist stop along the road.
