This waterfall, visible from the road, makes its splash where the headwaters of the West Fork Pigeon River and Bubbling Springs Branch meet. The cataract, located at 4,800 feet, exudes high country splendor. It flows about 25 feet in two stages, flanked by spruce trees, yellow birches, and other vegetation that grows only on the highest mantles of the Southern Appalachians. Born on the slopes of 6,000-plus-foot Mount Hardy, astride the Blue Ridge Parkway, Bubbling Springs Branch dashes down the north slope of the Blue Ridge, culminating in a two-tiered frothy, stony drop into a rock-lined plunge pool.
