We enjoyed the hike and the Linville Falls. We stopped at the first vantage point, and headed back to the lot, since it is about a mile round trip. There are some uneven steps near the vantage point to be careful on.

Visited the area years ago, but still love it! It’s secluded, quiet town. There are nature walks/ hikes, lots of streams and waterfalls to see, nature’s beauty at her best!

Only 1/4th of a mile from the parking lot to the river, be prepared it is a bit steep in areas. No restrooms, no trash cans, no benches along the trail.

The Linville River with Upper Falls were our favorite. Peaceful and so beautiful in an area of endless beauty.

We walked 3 trails. Maybe 1 1/2 hours. Beautiful scenery including waterfalls. Most shaded so not scorching hot. 3 year old and 11 year old did great...just worn out. Kid friendly....just be careful at the overlooks and tree roots on the paths.

We went in search of a falls with hiking trails that weren't too difficult since my husband has had some recent ligament issues. This hiking trail had several options starting from easy to difficult almost scrambling. We went on the 'green' trail to the Upper...More

The scenery along the Linville River to the falls and through the gorge is superlative even in a region of superlatives. Wondered at first as headed that way on the Blue Ridge Parkway from Grandfather Mountain and saw a sign for Linville Falls in the...More
