Hike To This Waterfall Lagoon In North Carolina For A Magical Day Trip

Western North Carolina’s unofficial nickname, The Land of Waterfalls, is backed up with hundreds of waterfalls scattered throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains. So many waterfalls… so little time! Get out and find them – starting with the following waterfall lagoon that’s not only a perfect hiking destination, it’s also a crystal-clear swimming hole with a flat rock beach where you can get lost in nature for the day.

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/

The parking area is located at 210 Staton Road, Hendersonville, NC (although the waterfall lagoon is 25 minutes southeast of Hendersonville.) Simply input your starting point into the address field at the far left of this Google maps link to get turn-by-turn directions.

(Please note: places within the plunge pool lagoon at the base of this waterfall have a depth that is well over the head of most adults.)
