Hiking At Carter Falls In North Carolina Is Like Entering A Fairytale
Season after season, exploring the wilds in our own back yard in the Tar Heel State always delivers marvelous adventures – especially when it’s a waterfall you’re chasing. If you’re familiar at all with the Yadkin Valley, then you still may never have heard of Carter Falls, a series of upper and lower falls located on the Elkin River.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

So have you hiked to Carter Falls yet? For the longest time this waterfall was basically inaccessible because it was on private land. Would you prefer to hike through the fairy tale route or park nearby and take a short walk to the falls? Sound off in our comments and post your photos if you have ’em!
