One of the most widely known waterfalls in North Carolina is the majestic Linville Falls. This waterfall is located in Linville and is easily traveled to by traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway to Linville. The falls trail is located at Milepost 316.3. You have to hike an easy trail to get to the different view points for viewing the falls. The falls feature a stunning 45 foot drop that can be seen from various viewpoints. At Milepost 316.4 is Duggers Creek Falls which is a 15 foot small waterfall that plunges into a nice pool.
At Julian Price Park in Blowing Rock you can see a smaller set of falls, known locally as the Boone Fork Falls. These are found on a strenuous 5 mile loop hiking trail called the Boone Fork Trail. Nearby in Valle Crucis you can view the Craborchard Falls at the Valle Crucis Conference Center property. While this is private property, the conference center has created a Waterfall Parking lot which is located behind the paved lot and marked for those looking for the waterfall. From the parking area you can follow the gravel road that runs behind the Inn and conference center to Johnson Hall.
Also on the parkway but the opposite direction from Linville is Cascade Falls just off of the parkway at Milepost 272 at E.B. Jeffrees Park. This location is about 15 miles from Boone, near Deep Gap North Carolina. Here you'll find a moderately strenuous trail that leads to a stunning waterfall.
