Whitewater Falls


A scenic overlook where visitors can view the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains is only a short walk from a parking lot near the North Carolina – South Carolina state line. The short walkway to the overlook is wheelchair accessible. A steep path to a lower overlook offers more difficult hiking and connects with the Foothills Trail. Drive north on State 130 to reach the parking lot from South Carolina. The entrance is just across the state line, where the road becomes North Carolina 281.
