High Shoals Scenic Area and Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is one of those places that you really should try to hit on a warm, sunny day—midweek if possible to avoid crowds—and be sure to bring your swimsuit. The High Shoals Trail snakes down through an inviting hemlock forest to two waterfalls. The first, Blue Hole Falls, gushes into a sunlit pool that makes a great swimming hole. The second waterfall, High Shoals Falls, drops at least 100 feet with water careening down a rough jumble of rock. The trail to the falls is not especially steep, but the sustained climb back to the trailhead makes it moderately difficult."
