We visited this waterfall for the second time in October. FYI if you are active military, you get in free. Love the tranquil walk to the waterfall. Beautiful views all around and rushing water below. It feels like you are in a peaceful fairy glen. The waterfall at the end of the trail is just gorgeous! Make sure to bring... More

This waterfall is a must see if you're in the Saluda, NC area. Maintained by a local garden club - the entire nature preserve is absolutely gorgeous! It includes green restrooms adjacent to the parking area, both covered and open picnic areas, a signboard with photos of currently blooming wild flowers, and benches scattered all along the well maintained 1/4...

Came to visit in Sept..this time came back with family. The $5pp admission is worth it. The facilities are clean. Several stops with benches and/or picnic tables. The hike is easy and steady. The Falls and scenery, with marked vegetation, is breathtaking.

Very beautiful. An easy hike over a well maintained trail. It is maintained by the garden club. The falls are beautiful and so is the hike. It is close to Greenville and very near Saluda. Easy drive so make a day of it and enjoy!!! $5 per person.

First time to take our kids to see a waterfall. They enjoyed it and so did we. It was such a nice walk up the rocky pathy way to the falls and had a railing. Many great spots to take pictures. I love listening to the water rushing down the mountain. We were there at least 3 hours. It can... More

This was my 2nd visit to Pearson's Falls and I will go again when I'm visiting Tryon. $5 / person admission is well worth the price. There is a 1/4 mile well-maintained, terraced trail to the falls and some short spurs off of the main trail. While the falls are the main attraction, be sure to take time to look... More

This is such a pretty spot to walk and enjoy the wildflowers and the small creek that tumbles from gorgeous Pearson's Falls. The garden club volunteers do a fine job of maintaining this area. It seems each time we visit more improvements have been made, and I appreciate that so much. If not for these kind folks, most likely the... More

My husband & I like hikes with some meat to them, so initially weren't planning on the1/4 mile hike to Pearson's Falls. It was suggested to us by several fellow travelers, so we decided to spend the $5 each to get in & do the walk to the falls. It definitely wasn't much of a hike, but enough of a... More

Gorgeous scenery on the easy 1/4 mile hike to the falls. Plenty of places to stop and enjoy a picnic lunch along the way as well or even right at the top. Not crowded at all. By the time we left at around 1:15, we were the only people there!

We visited on a family weekend (eight of us) ranging in age from 25 to 75 and none of us found the hike to the Falls in any way difficult, but do be careful. One could tear an ankle ligament if not paying attention. The Falls are 90 feet high and worth seeing and the walk to the Falls is... More
