Wildcat Falls is located in Pisgah National Forest in Haywood County, North Carolina. The falls are a short hike from Highway 215 and close to The Blue Ridge Parkway. The falls is 50-60 feet high, easy to get to, family friendly and has a unique old concrete logging bridge that runs over top of it. From The Blue Ridge Parkway, take NC Highway 215 exit and go north on 215 (you’ll turn left). Go .8 miles, and turn right into a gravel drive marked with a small sign that says BR1. Watch closely for it, as it will sneak up on you. You’ll see a parking area large enough for 3-4 cars. If the lot is full, you can continue north on 215 for another quarter of a mile, and a there will be additional parking on the left. The trail proceeds through several campsites, then crosses Bubbling Spring Branch. At the quarter mile mark, you’ll pass two small waterfalls, and another small “rock hop” across a small creek. This is not Wildcat Falls, so keep going. Wildcat Falls is ¾ mile from the parking lot.
