Linville Falls

“Grand Canyon of the Southern Appalachians”

Linville Falls is the most popular waterfall in the Blue Ridge Mountains because of its accessibility to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a spectacular three-tiered waterfall plunging into Linville Gorge, the “Grand Canyon of the Southern Appalachians.”

After leaving Valle Crucis, Megan Collante and Camie Ragsdale and I headed towards the Blue Ridge Parkway in search of waterfalls. We got more than we bargained for. Treacherous trails, twisted trees, babbling brooks, rocky basins, and plunging waters with breathtaking views from all angles.
