Attractions Near Highlands, North Carolina

Mooney Falls - Highlands NC

A .6 mile drive up the road from Laural Falls you'll hear this waterfall before the turn out. The trail here is less than 1/4 mile both ways and really easy, making this a walk for most anyone. With multible switchbacks making the gentle decent, the trail splits about half way to the falls allowing you to go above the main chute or below. The left trail takes you above the main falls but allows you to see a mulitible cascade of small drops. The right trail takes you to the base. Lots of storm damage has placed many logs in this falls and has damage the folage along the walk, but the easy walk makes it worth including this one on your list.
