There are two falls, upper and lower. The lower falls can be accessed down an inclined trail and steps. The hike to the upper falls is much longer and more of a challenge, up and down tails, lots of rocks and roots and some parts...More

The trail we hiked was muddy most of the way. I have never been on a walking trail that was so crowded with other people! The popularity of this place has become it's downfall, I fear. The area near the water was beautiful but people...More

We hiked to the Lower Falls at Graveyard Falls and part way through the meadow of Graveyard Fields. It is a fairly easy hike to the Lower Falls but be prepared for some steps. The trail descends down a paved path through a thick rhododendron,...More

This is hike is fairly easy! From the rhododendron tunnel to the blue berries to the wonderful falls! I have to say this is my favorite hike outside of Asheville!

The walk to the lower Falls was harder than expected. The parking lot and falls were very crowded and overall we weren’t impressed. We would go back to Looking Glass Falls, High Falls and Triple Falls before ever returning here.

We were looking for a 3-4 mile loop trail and found this one. Skip it! The trail is not marked well at all and is basically a pig path. The falls portion was nice, but skip the long trail.

We only hiked to the lower falls. They are very beautiful. There are several stairs to go down and up, but the trail is very nicely kept. Go early so avoid large crowds. We enjoyed the falls all to ourselves because we got there around...More
