Linville Falls is probably the most photographed waterfall in North Carolina. The Upper Falls Overlook is the easiest to reach and offers a protected view of the twin waterfalls.
Linville Falls is the most popular waterfall in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina because of its accessibility to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a spectacular three-tiered waterfall plunging into Linville Gorge, the “Grand Canyon of the Southern Appalachians.”
Linville Falls is slowed down to a relatively small trickle as it is tamed by the pool of water. It is an ideal position for one sitting on the rock to admire the falls.
