This is a fairly easy hike - not quite 3/4 of a mile one way - and is kid friendly. The waterfall is on a tributary of the west fork of the Pigeon River and is 50-60' high.

Easy and enjoyable hike. Water features are great - it's hard to capture the scale of the larger falls in photos. Beautiful views of the Blueridge Parkway. Great for a quick hike or for hikers that don't want to deal with much elevation change.

Great easy hike with views of two waterfalls but you do have to cross a stream toward the beginning of the hike using the rocks in the stream (difficult when iced over in winter). The view of the falls covered in ice is beautiful.
