From the Visitor's Center you can park and have access to a bathroom. The earlier your arrival the better - the later, the more crowded if it's a weekend or busy tourist season. Please note that there is another parking lot for Linville Falls that...More

If you hit Linville caverns, this is a must while you are nearby. The fairly short .4 mile is moderate but well worth it. Multiple views of upper and lower falls. Don't miss this wonder of nature!

It's your average visitor center. Small things to purchase. ( ornaments, books, etc) friendly staff, bathrooms on site. They do have bottled water and some candy like snacks.

This has it all, a quick walk on handicap accessible trails to an overlook, a hard day hike into the gorge or an overnight backpack trip. Park there and get info from the friendly ranges. Also lots of books and maps about the surrounding area.

We locked our keys out of the car and the staff was very helpful. Also informative about the falls in general. Beautiful area.

It is easy to go to and find the falls, and it is a nice panoramic view that you and your family or friends will enjoy to take some selfies. There are also pathways through the forest.
