Trails of Linville Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Explore a total of over 4 miles of trails centered on renowned 150-foot Linville Falls, off the Blue Ridge Parkway. From the visitor center you first view Upper Falls, then soak in elevated looks at the main portion of Linville Falls backed by a panorama of Carolina mountains. Return to the trailhead, then take the more challenging track to Linville Falls and its big, stone-rimmed plunge basin, then grab an additional elevated perspective. Finally, pay a little visit to 12-foot Duggers Creek Falls aquatic tour.

Linville Falls is arguably the signature cataract for the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. After all, it has its own visitor center and campground centered around it, and a fine set of nature trails of varying diculties ffi that add up to over 4 miles of hiking if you do them all. Moreover, these paths are not just aimless walks in the woods. The trails lead to multiple vantages of 150-foot Linville Falls from near and far, up and down, below and beside."
