Very picturesque! Great place for a family photo. You pay 5.00 per adult. A little easy, beautiful walk to the falls. You’ll be taking photos on the way there. Lots of moss and small waterfalls. We visited 4 waterfalls, this was my favorite.

Well worth the $5 entrance fee that helps maintain it. Quiet, easy walk, breathtaking views. Lots of spots to sit and enjoy the views.

Beautiful water falled nestled in the wood with lots of cottages nearby built in the hills. Very unique rock tunnel which people have added graffiti too throughout the years.

Walked a short distance on easy trail to the falls. Beautifully maintained trail and area by local garden club. Worth the $5 entrance fee. The falls themselves are tiered and therefore unique looking. Just beautiful to see.

Staying in Saluda with college friends, Pearson's Falls was high on our list of things to do. As advertised, the falls are a fairly short and relatively easy hike from the parking lot. The trail is a well maintained path with lots of flat local...More
