On our way south on scenic route 11 we saw the waterfall from the road, so we stopped, walked back for photos and walked the trail where we saw a hearth remains of Greenville Wayside Park built in the late 1930s

Walked 1.4 round trip to see 2 decent and nice waterfalls, small ones compared to what I am used to seeing in western NC. Nice walk, wide paths, heavily traveled path too.

Not overly challenging but a pleasant, woodsy, shady, maintained path that is partially along a stream. Only 1 mile but a nice place to visit if you want to walk and have nothing else planned.

One of the owners at Solitude Point mention this easy access waterfall by the roadway. It’s a pull off on the side of road with cement parking area. A reminder with any walking in this area always bring a bottle of water or two, due...More

Great quick roadside stop with a nice little waterfall and a pleasant hike. Obviously, if you’re going to wade in the falls, be careful because there aren’t any boundaries at this one. But the water is COLD, so we only went ankle deep across some...More
