Glen Falls


category : Natural Attractions
There are several beautiful falls and accompanying cascades here that drop 640 feet in only a half-mile. So, though the well-maintained trail to the 70-, 60-, and 15-foot waterfalls in the Glen Falls Scenic Area is less than a mile long, it is steep and tough to hike back up. To reach the area, take NC Hwy 106 just south of Highlands for less than 2 miles until you see the Glen Falls Scenic Area sign on the left and take S.R.1619 immediately on the right. From there, it's a mile to the trail that leads from a parking area.
