North Carolina Waterfalls
These are photographs of waterfalls in the mountains of North Carolina.
These are my pictures. You can find lots of pictures of waterfalls if you
search the web, so I decided just to put my pictures here. These
have been taken over the past few years.
- Stone Mountain Falls
This waterfalls is a long drop over a big rock, carrying a nice amount of water.
There is a small pool at the bottom and an overlook at the top. As I get
the information, I will include the height and waterflow.
Looking Glass Falls - This is one of
the many waterfalls in the Pisgah National Forest, just outside of Brevard,
NC. It is easily found on US 276 as you drive north from Brevard to the
Blue Ridge Parkway. This waterfall is right beside the road and easy
- Stone Mountain - This is the front of Stone
Mountain, a huge face in the Northern mountains of North Carolina.
It is from the eastern side of this rock that Stone Mountain Falls drops.
- Whitewater Falls - This is on the border of North and South
Carolina on the Whitewater river. It is easily accessible from your car, with about a 0.1 mile
blacktop walkway. However, we did it the hard way. This was taken at the end of a 5 day backpacking
trip, ending with the climb from the Whitewater River up to the top of the falls. It is a wonder
that this picture is in focus and not wobbly.
- Crowder's Mountain - This is not a waterfall,
but an escarpment just west of Charlotte. It is a popular place for
rock climbing and rescues.
South Carolina Waterfalls
Raven Cliff Falls: This is off US
276 between Caesars Head and Jones Gap, SC. It is accessible by a
2.2 mile trail in the Mountain Bridge Area. The trails are well marked.
For an extra 1.2 miles, you can reach the falls by a footbridge traversing
the top of the falls.
