Well maintained path with multiple steps and some bridges. Even small children and able bodied elderly can manage this short trail. Caretaker Andy pointed out and explained a lot of the abundant wild flowers. The modest entrance fee is well worth it, $5.- for adults...More

Visited on a beautiful morning with my wife and enjoyed the visit. The hike up to the falls is mild and footing sure. It is a beautiful place and worth the visit.

This location is worth the short drive from the interstate. We were there early and had the place to ourselves. The hike is short but along the way you can see interesting flowers and trees. It is nice that many trees were labeled. There is...More

If you are in the area, this is a very nice place to visit. The waterfall is very pretty and there is a creek going along the walkway with a couple of pretty spots to take pictures. The walk to the falls is 1/4 mile...More

I love this waterfall. Whenever I have guests in from out of town, I take them there. It is a very easy hike to the waterfall and the payoff is incredible. The garden club of Tryon keeps this beautiful area clean, cleared and always pristine....More

Very picturesque! Great place for a family photo. You pay 5.00 per adult. A little easy, beautiful walk to the falls. You’ll be taking photos on the way there. Lots of moss and small waterfalls. We visited 4 waterfalls, this was my favorite.

Well worth the $5 entrance fee that helps maintain it. Quiet, easy walk, breathtaking views. Lots of spots to sit and enjoy the views.

Beautiful water falled nestled in the wood with lots of cottages nearby built in the hills. Very unique rock tunnel which people have added graffiti too throughout the years.
