The Linville Falls In North Carolina Will Soon Be Surrounded By Beautiful Fall Colors

The mountains in Western North Carolina are a favorite spot for natives and visitors alike each fall for the best leaf peeping available in the South. A drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway is an annual rite of passage from summer into fall for many and a stop at the most popular waterfall on the parkway is also a must.

Things to know before you go: Weekends are very crowded at Linville Falls. To avoid the biggest crowds, go during the week. Wear hiking or walking shoes, not sandals, and bring plenty of water. Be sure to use the facilities at the Visitor Center before embarking on this hike; no other facilities are available at the site.
