Really a beautifall waterfall. To access the viewing deck you must be very careful. To go further is a potential falling hazard. Young or very fit persons are more suited to this in my opinion.

If you're in the Maggie Valley area this is a must see. After the recent rains the water was really flowing. If you don't get around easily, this would be a difficult place to access with the steep path down to it. I noticed an...More
