There’s plenty of North Carolina-type things both locals and transplants want to do (or say they’ll do), like a fall drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, climbing Mount Mitchell, traveling along the Outer Banks Scenic Byway, stopping off at Jockey’s Ridge, visiting every lighthouse and landmark; I’m getting tired just thinking about it. While there are plenty of places and spaces deserving of every North Carolinian’s bucket list, some are just quintessential Carolina. For one notable place that is perfect for a late summer or early fall hike, Linville Falls is a must.

Linville Falls is such a beautiful place and the easy accessibility makes it a must for any North Carolinian looking for an accomplishable adventure. Have you visited here before?

The waterfall was named for Linville Gorge. While visiting the falls, take time to also visit the Grand Canyon of the East.
