Elk River Falls

Elk River Road, Elk Park, NC 28622

The Elk River drops 85 feet over a wide, even ledge to form Elk River Falls and then crashes into a huge rock bowl pool. A short, steep, and moderately strenuous 0.3 mile trail takes you down to the bottom of the falls. 

Always practice waterfall safety by staying out of the water above and beneath the falls, never climbing on slippery rocks, and keeping a close eye on children. Obey all posted signage.
