This Hidden Waterfall Park In North Carolina May Become Your New Favorite Destination

Hidden waterfalls abound in North Carolina. However, you won’t find many that are the feature attraction for a city park – or quite as majestic as the hidden McGailliard Falls located in the town of Valdese, 14 miles east of Morganton.

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/
