Wow, how fantastic that Cashiers has a fun waterfall on 107 just south of the Crossroads. The easy, short walk from 107 means you can add this waterfall into the activities of any day. Take your shoes off and wade in the shallow pool at...More

Very sad that this wonderful experience has fallen to such disrepair. We used to go all the time and never had any problems. It was fun with the shallow pools and sand around them. Little children had a great time. Locals and tourists all enjoyed...More

A nice little place to stop and even get wet! Not too much parking, maybe 5 cars tops! A little tricky walking due to mud and heavy tree roots...but an easy walk overall.

If you are just trying to see waterfalls, this is a good one to check off your list. Enough parking for maybe 8 cars. Then a 3-minute walk to the falls. The path is well maintained and pretty much flat! If you want to, you...More

Short walk to the falls. Must be able to handle the multiple tree roots. It does get crowded, so you may have to circle around a few times to find a parking spot. If you do park on the opposite side of the road, be...More

Silver Run Falls is just south of Cashiers. It is an easy walk from Highway 107. The waterfall is beautiful and creates a shallow pool that many people enjoy on a hot summer day. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the...More

The path to the falls is overgrown and not well-worn, which adds to its appeal. Just be prepared with proper footwear (I wasn't). There's lots of hiking over separated clusters of tree roots. The path is narrow and shaded by beautiful canopies of trees. Once...More

This is a great stop. It’s easy to get to the falls and there is a nice big waterfall at the end. There are several places to swim also.

This is a very short hike to a nice waterfall. You can climb down some rocks (not very difficult) and get down to the river/pool area. It's calm enough to swim around and kids will love to jump off low rocks. Yes, it is as...More
