This weekend Bella and I took a road trip to Pisgah National Forest to see Looking Glass Falls, a 60-foot waterfall with a swimming area. You can park on the side and walk to the falls and take pics, you can even take a swim. No strollers are needed, unless you want to carry a baby plus stroller up and down at least 50 steps. Once you get to the bottom it’s so nice and cool. Not a lot of benches but they do have plenty of rocks to sit on.
It was a beautiful site to see and it was free!! I love road trips and NC has so many beautiful things to see. I did a little research and found more waterfalls right in our backyard. Take the kids one weekend along with a towel and bathing suit.
I heard the colder the water, the better.
Few waterfalls I would love to visit, drop a few of your favs too!
Dry Falls : A popular waterfall located a few miles outside of Highlands, gives you the rare treat of walking safely behind a waterfall. This 75-ft. tall waterfall in the Nantahala National Forest flows over a cliff, allowing you to walk behind the falls and stay dry. During rainy spells when the water volume is higher, the spray will prevent you from staying totally dry.
Bridal Veil Falls : Take 276 back to Brevard and make a right on 64 W. Take that all the way through Cashiers and the falls will be about 11.5 from Cashiers on your right.
Whitewater Falls : From Dry Falls, go east on 64, hang a right at the center of Cashiers onto 107 South, and then make a left onto 130 North and follow signs to the falls. It’s about 25 miles total.
