This waterfall is easy to get to but hard to get close to. It can be found off Highway 281, southeast of Cashiers, NC, in the Nantahala National Forest (map). There’s a parking area and then an easy 1/4 mile walk to the upper viewing area. There’s also a stairway that leads to a lower and smaller viewing area.
The first photo was our initial view of the falls from the upper viewing area. As you can see there were still some spectacular remaining autumn foliage colors.
The second photo gives a better view of the details of the falls–be sure and click on it for a larger image.
Almost no post-processing was needed for these two photos.
Oh…and happy Friday the 13th!
