Originally added by Jared Beeler

Beautiful 200 foot cascading waterfall on the side of the road.

This waterfall is right off the side of the road on NC 215. NC 215 is straight off of the blue ridge parkway and is just north of Brevard. The waterfall has to main parts one that is above the road and one that is below. The part below the road is the most scenic and the easiest to walk too. The bottom of the falls has some areas that can be used for swimming and picnicking. The parking for the waterfall is right off the road in a small gravel area that can accommodate a few cars no more than 10.
