We just added two new waterfalls – Bard Falls and North Harper Creek Falls, both on North Harper Creek. These are located in the Pisgah National Forest’s Wilson Creek area, which includes drainages below the Blue Ridge and Grandfather Mountain. This area is not far west and north of Marion, Morganton, Hickory, and Lenoir, NC, making it closer to some of the state’s bigger population centers than mountains further west.
Bard Falls is a tumbling cascade which falls into a churning chute, before spilling into a huge swimming hole. It’s in a wilderness-like setting, and it’s an area not visited very heavily. Click here to see the full page on NorthCarolinaWaterfalls.info.
North Harper Creek Falls is a beautiful slide culminating in a drop nearly 40 feet high, with a deep pool at the bottom. There is plenty of room to hang out and enjoy the view. Click here to see the full page on NorthCarolinaWaterfalls.info.
Doesn’t a hike to a cool mountain waterfall sound great about right now with this summer heat? We hope you enjoy the hikes as much as we did!
