Catawba Falls

Catawba Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The trail to Catawba Falls has been open to the public only since 2010, and thank goodness for that! The gradual 1.5-mile trail travels upstream along the headwaters of the Catawba River. The path takes you past several ruins before approaching an old dam. Past the dam, the hike becomes more rugged. Large roots, streams, and boulders complicate the trail, but after a little bit of fancy footwork, you will be rewarded when you reach the base of the dramatic Catawba Falls."
