Take A Magical Waterfall Hike In North Carolina To Catawba Falls, If You Can Find It

Just 25 miles east of downtown Asheville, Catawba River tumbles down, cascading into a series of waterfalls that, together, create a 100-foot scenic beauty in the Pisgah National Forest. Reaching this waterfall requires a three-mile round trip hike on an out-and-back trail that meanders through a shady forest. Here is a quick guide to reaching Catawba Falls.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

As much as it is tempting, do not attempt to reach the upper cascades or stand, climb, sit on, or jump from the boulders. Authorities deem it dangerous due to the slippery rocks and intense, rushing waters.
