I’m pretty passionate about hiking to waterfalls. So much so that I want to share my experiences with the world. I’ve spent the last few years hiking trails to waterfalls along the Appalachian Mountains (mostly in North Carolina) to bring you the ultimate beginner’s guide for hikes in the region. Almost all of the hikes on this website are good for people who don’t get out much, have small children, or can’t physically do moderately strenuous activities.
This website is divided into several regions with descriptions to nearly 200 different waterfalls in more than a dozen different states. If you want to know more or want help putting together a good waterfalling road trip, feel free to contact me.
