This 90-ft. waterfall is located in the foothills of Western North Carolina and amid 268 acres of virgin forest and spring-fed streams. Walk along the glen trail and feel the cool, playful mist that is often in the air from the waterfall. On the way up to the falls, be sure to stop and observe more than 200 species of fern, flowering plants, algae and mosses in the wildflower preserve. Sit on one of the benches and feel the peacefulness of this natural sanctuary as you listen to the water and the birds.
