The main trail has reopened with safety improvements at the falls overlook.
The NC Wildlife Commission is now requiring a permit prior to accessing the falls. That permit and process for submittal can be found at the this site: https://www.ncwildlife.org/Connect-With-Us/NCWRC-Operations-Closings-and-Alerts
Hike at your own risk. The trail is primitive and requires crossing the stream. Proper hiking shoes are required. The trail is especially dangerous at
the top of the falls. Seven people have fallen to their death since 2007 in this area!! Please be careful!! Do not attempt to hike to the bottom.
