Excerpted from TripAdvisor hiker reviews:

Great family day – We have hiked the falls before but previously took the easier route. My teenage sons wanted to take the difficult route this time. It was wonderful. It’s about 1/2 mile down the the river and over to the waterfall itself. A 1/4 of the hike was easy but the rest was strenuous but not impossible. We saw all types of hikers Saturday. The nice thing was you set your own pace. At the bottom you can spend a lot of time sitting on rocks in the sun, wading in the river or trying to figure out how close you can actually get to the fall. We will be hiking here again in the future. ” — user Brandy H Charlotte, NC

Excellent hike, beautiful view – The various trails lead to great views. The hike is enjoyable, not too difficult, dogs welcome. The parking lot is near the river which is just a few feet to access. The trails are easy to follow, the gift shop/tour info provides trail maps and local info. We enjoyed the trees, shrubs, falls, sounds, and the walk. We highly recommend this attraction. We will return to the site to walk the trails again in the future. ” — user AirForceTraveler Charleston, WV

Timing Matters for Spectacular Photos – We recently moved to the area, and the good news is that Linville Falls is only a short trip away. The bad news is that I’ve still yet to capture a spectacular photo. We tried during the fall last year (October) and the foliage was already off the majority of the trees. We just visited again with the hope that spring would be in full bloom (late April), but the leaves had still not come in on most trees. The visitor center is very simple. The facility itself was closed down [as of 5-2-2014, always check the NPS site for opening dates for Parkway facilities] and the only restrooms were port-a-potty style (yeah), but there were still quite a few folks hiking the trails. There are several trail options and multiple viewing spots at different elevations. The main trails are wide and easy to navigate but I recommend good shoes to manage through the rocks and roots. Most of the paths to the viewing sites are wood stairs / hard ground with handrails, but it could be tricky if you are not sure footed or don’t like climbing stairs. We saw everyone from small kids to seniors making the trek. I’m not going to give up. I will keep going back until I get the perfect shot! ” — user TracyTravelsOn Salsbury, NC
