Catawba Falls State Park, NC
Catawba Falls was only 13 miles from our VRBO rental in Chesire Village, so getting to the park early was easy.
Catawba Falls State Park contains one of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Catawba is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep. Visitors can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain a permit to hike to the gorge floor (100 per day, not available during water releases). A suspension bridge sways 80 feet above the Tallulah River below, providing spectacular views of the river and waterfalls.
We picked this as our next stop, because it is obviously pretty and it is on the way to Asheville, NC - our next "stay over" location.
Views of the Gorge suspension bridge, taken from the rim trail. The suspension bridge is 80 feet above the Tallulah River below it, and yes, it does sway.
The river area, as can be seen from an observation platform on the rim above. Crossing the gorge on the suspension bridge, seriously good view below!
