A Short But Beautiful Hike, Picklesimer Rock House Falls Trail Leads To A Little-Known Waterfall In North Carolina
Chasing waterfalls in North Carolina affords many opportunities to get outside and reconnect with Mother Nature. Some trails, as you’d imagine, are heavily-trafficked but still worthy of the effort. But sometimes, a little solitude makes all the difference in the quality of the time you spend on the trail. If you’re seeking a fantastic journey that leads to one of the lesser-known waterfalls in the Tar Heel State, then plan to hike the Picklesimer Rock House Falls Trail, just 20 minutes southwest of Highlands.
