“Nice quiet place.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I'm glad someone had the foresight to save such a beautiful place and preserve it for future generations. I'm glad they charge an admission fee as that keeps out those who have a tendency not to respect places like this. The short walk to the falls is beautiful, and there are several places to have a picnic. The plants and trees are labeled for identification, and I agree with another reviewer that a handbook of plants or a simple guide should be offered to visitors.

“Short Hike, Beautiful Falls”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Pros: Short hike to beautiful falls, great for a picnic
Cons: No visitor's guide with pictures available for purchase

Pearson's Falls located just a few minutes from either Tryon or Saluda and very easy to find, with ample parking under the trees. The falls are just a short hike up a trail that has some steep points but is lovingly maintained. This is not an "accessible" hike, but is very worthwhile for families and anyone who is mobile, since it is relatively short. There are several areas for picnicking with tables including a covered area. Some ot the plants and trees are labeled with common names for identification.
One small drawback is that with such a beautiful setting so well cared for, there is no visitor's guide with pictures and descriptions of the plants and trees. Such as guide would be a wonderful addition to a visit.

“Quite nice, definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The falls are a private park with a $10 entry fee. The falls are very nice with a lovely cascade. It's definitely worth a visit. The trail to the falls is extremely well maintained and stone pavers are used for a great deal of the way. In fact, the trail is much better maintained than similar trails in National Parks. Funny, how private ownership again beats government ownership...
