The Hike To This Pretty Little North Carolina Waterfall Is Short And Sweet
When most visitors seeking out a famous North Carolina waterfall head to Linville Falls, they’re so focused upon seeing the majestic waterfall known for having the highest volume of water of any of the falls in the Blue Ridge Mountains that they bypass another waterfall entirely. But there’s a side trail, only 0.2 mile long that leads to a gorgeous little waterfall set among lush, green surroundings. It’s a moss-covered oasis you’ll not want to miss the next time you’re at Linville Falls Visitor Center.
