My back was bothering me and I didn't want to do a lot of walking so we picked Pearson's Falls because it was only 1/4 mile hike to the 90 foot falls. The website said it was a moderate hike but I would rate it...More

Walked a short distance on easy trail to the falls. Beautifully maintained trail and area by local garden club. Worth the $5 entrance fee. The falls themselves are tiered and therefore unique looking. Just beautiful to see.

We took a Sunday morning walk from Saluda down to the falls and found ourselves alone on the partially paved road. Very pleasant. 50 minutes each way. No signs so just keep going until the park entrance. One dark tunnel a bit unnerving. The Glen...More

This is well worth the stop. Quick walk to the top but you do NOT want to walk quickly as there is too much beauty to rush by!
