Crab Orchard Falls

146 Skiles Way, Banner Elk, NC 28604

Crab Orchard Falls is located on the property of the Valle Crucis Conference Center. Parking is located behind conference center, take a left at the fork and follow signs that indicate "Waterfall Parking." From the parking area you will follow the road that runs behind the Inn to Johnson Hall where you will park behind the building. The trail starts here, turns sharply to the left and climbs up a steep hill and back down to the base of the falls. There are steps along the trail but be careful and use your judgment when climbing. 

Enjoy the sharing of this beautiful, private property. 

A new, longer and more gradually climbing trail to Crab Orchard Falls is being built in 2024! Stay tuned for more information.
