I’ve lived in this area my entire life and never been here. It’s not a long hike by any means but there is a very nice reward at the end. It’s was really slick and icy but so worth it. The falls is huge. It...More

It was a very cold December day when we went so we only walked to the first fall. It was beautiful even in the winter. I would highly recommend stopping to see it.

We stopped here on our way to Charleston. It is an easy 1/4 mile hike from the parking lot to the waterfalls. The final section to the water fall base is a little tougher, but very manageable for most people. A great spot to relax...More

I stopped on my way from Ohio to Charlotte and was pleasantly surprised by these falls. The drive from the highway is definitely harrowing, especially in the snow when the road hasn't been salted yet. Eads Mill Rd is a one-lane, unlined road that is...More

Short walk .25. The pathway is very uneven lots of big rocks and tree roots. Very slick when wet. Access to get close to the falls is a very steep path down the hillside. You can view the falls from the walkway.

Beware of using your gps to find these falls! You will be taken up a mountain that requires a 4x4 and no room to turn around! Go to the website and just follow the directions listed once you are off the interstate. Once we found...More

This is one of my favorite places to go when I'm in town! The hike to get to the waterfalls is very easy and gorgeous along the way.

Nice place for nature lovers. Very short walk/hike from the parking area. A very nice but much smaller fall by the name of "White Creek Falls" is about 45 min - 1hr &15min hike beyond Brush Creek Falls. The trail splits onto two once your...More
