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: The trail begins to the left and continues over a series of dirt mounds. In 0.51 mile, look for a side path on the right. This path descends steeply to the base of the falls.
