Review of Soco Falls

Attraction details
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Soco Falls is located on Rt. 19 from Maggie Valley to Cherokee, NC. It is a little tricky to find and you really have to look for the signs. There is a really small pull off that will hold five or six cars. The pull off is on your left if traveling from Maggie Valley and on your right if coming from Cherokee. Much harder to fin coming from Maggie Valley because it is on a blind curve. It is worth the effort to locate it. Once you are there it is a very short hike down to a wooden viewing platform for the falls. It is not wheel chair accessible or accessible to those that have problems with a short, steep decent. Once you get there you are in for such a pleasant surprise. It let's you know how little we know about what might just lie close to the roads and highways that we travel as we cross this beautiful country. Ask questions and find the out of the way places. The journey is worth it.

Very good place to take pictures. The way down is steep but I enjoyed it very much. Would go back in the future.

There is a great view of this falls from a platform. WE walked down easily, and could see a lot of nice forest and the stream.

Only small signs reveal it's location between Cherokee and Maggie Valley, but do stop at the pull-out going up the mountain to see some really nice views. A short walk down the hill and the falls feature two creeks falls coming together in awesome glory.
