Big Shoals Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Previously, hikers heading to this falls found their way on old logging roads and skirted—ahem, perhaps even crossed—private property to reach this Nantahala National Forest aquatic gem. But the U.S. Forest Service realized the visual value of this cataract—and of forest users staying on public lands—and thus built the Big Shoals Trail, which takes you to 35-foot-high Big Shoals. It is a real tumbler, too, spilling over a rock cliff into an alluring sand-bordered pool."
