Hike at your own risk - the trail is primitive and requires crossing the stream. Proper hiking shoes required. The trail is especially dangerous at the top of the falls. Seven people have fallen to their death since 2007 in this area!! Please be careful!! Do not attempt to hike to the bottom.

WHERE: Saluda, NC

Bring a Map

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
