Crabtree Falls, NC

Crabtree Falls is located near Little Switzerland, NC at the Crabtree Meadows Recreation Area off of the Blue Ridge Parkway ( MP 339.5).  It is about a 2 mile loop to see the 70 ft. falls.

Crabtree Falls is a beautiful and very popular waterfall.  I would like it even better if it wasn't so popular.  We visited on a weekend and it was packed.  The hike is relatively easy and level and the trail is very well maintained. When you reach the falls there is a bridge at the base to view the falls and a bench to sit and relax.  The waterfall has a unique look in how the water flows down the rock branching off in many directions.  This is definitely one to see and cross off your list.
