These 20 Breathtaking Waterfalls Are Hiding In North Carolina

With North Carolina being home to over 250 waterfalls, its a little hard to pick just twenty, thirty, or even fifty, to explore. Despite the dreary weather currently overtaking my section of the state, making this list has me dreaming of the lush greenery of the North Carolina mountains. There is nothing quite like dipping your toes in that cool mountain water after a long summer hike on the Blue Ridge. I know there is warm weather on the horizon, so I’m making a must see starter list for springtime adventures.

Literally speaking, take a hike! Here are 20 waterfalls in North Carolina that are waiting to be explored!
