High Shoals Falls and Upper Falls Professional Review and Guide

"High Shoals Falls, on Jacob’s Fork River, is often described as the most spectacular geological feature in South Mountains State Park. The waterfall is spectacular, but so is the extensive boardwalk that leads to the observation deck at the base of the falls."

"Comprised of more than 18,000 acres you could spend weeks exploring the vast terrain of this state park. There’s a campground, equestrian camping, and an astonishing 47.0 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The South Mountain Range is equally as expansive. It encompasses three counties and once served as a buffer between the Cherokee and Catawba Tribes and early white settlers.

The hike begins as a leisurely stroll along the Hemlock Nature Trail. You pass interpretive signs about streamside birds, minnows, and animal tracks. You may learn a thing or two while following the shallow rocky river. You’ll see families wading in the water, and the dogs can too."
