This Waterfall Staircase Hike May Be The Most Unique In All Of North Carolina

The Tar Heel State is no stranger to waterfalls. Western North Carolina is home to literally hundreds of the enchanting attractions and many are located right beside the highway. Others are the magnificent reward for miles and miles of hiking. But this one is different – in more ways than one: the hike is short and the payoff is huge!

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/
