Driving Directions: N.C. 181 crosses the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 312. From N.C. 181 exit to the Blue Ridge Parkway and turn left onto the parkway. At milepost 311 turn right onto the gravel Jonas Ridge Road (S.R. 1518). Follow the road, which begins as gravel, is paved for a short distance passing a Christmas tree farm, and returning to gravel again, for 1.7 miles to a T junction with a church on the left. Turn left onto F.R. 464 (Edgemont Road). After 2.5 miles come to F.R. 58 on the right. Don’t turn right. Instead, continue on F.R. 464 for 1.5 miles to F.R. 464A, which cuts very sharply to the left. Drive down F.R. 464A for 0.87 mile to the end of the road.

Hiking Directions: From the base of the upper waterfall, climb the bank and pick up the trail heading downstream. Follow this trail to where you can see the falls through the trees. Scramble down the slope to the base.
