Waterfalls in Western North Carolina

This time of year will spark an urge to be outdoors, and to really enjoy this natural environment that is like no other. Let us concentrate on amongst the most breath-taking features of our parks and mountains: waterfalls.

Hooker Falls in Dupont State Park

In Brevard County, Dupont State Forest has a plethora of waterfalls, a few of which will require a hike, other ones of which command merely a small walk. This time of year, heavier rain results in an impactful stream, making the already amazing waterfalls highly spectacular. The trails are marked well and kiosks at every one of the trailheads offer adequate details. The primary attractions include Wintergreen Falls, Triple Falls, Hooker Falls, High Falls, Grassy Creek Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. Each one provides something different. For example, Bridal Veil Falls has an overhang which permits individuals to stroll behind the “veil.” High Falls simply are impressive and high.

Sliding Rock isn’t too far from the Dupont State Forest, and will stand out for its special use of its falls. The slickness and angle, generates a natural water slide which draws masses each summer. If you desire calm reflection here, we suggest either visiting within the off-season or a weekday, as the falls are amazingly popular (long lines to the top should be expected). Sliding Rock is situated inside Mt. Pisgah.
