North Carolina Waterfalls
The North Carolina Waterfalls page exhibits the waterfalls that we’ve visited in the “Tar Heel” state. As you can see from the waterfall map above, most of the state’s waterfalls reside in its western half, which sits within the scenic Appalachian Mountains.
While we tend to think of states that harbor many waterfalls to lie way out in the Western United States, it seems that North Carolina has more than its share of waterfalls. And when you combine these waterfalls with the annual Fall Colors, you end up with a magical display of hues and rushing waters.
Indeed, we have so many write-ups of waterfalls in the Tar Heel state that we have put together a list of the Top 10 best waterfalls in North Carolina to showcase our favorites. Many of the state’s waterfalls have also appeared in other Top 10 Lists, including the Top 10 Autumn Waterfalls List!
Finally, as you can see from the waterfalls listing below, you might notice the ratings corresponding to each of the waterfall write-ups. This provides you an at-a-glance indicator of which waterfalls impressed us the most. And if you dig deeper, each write-up has its own at-a-glance ratings for difficulty letting you know which waterfalls require hikes or scrambles and which ones require hardly any effort at all.
So have a look at our sampling of the waterfalls in North Carolina, and see if you might find this useful for your own trip planning needs…
