We visited in March for spring break. Nice bridge to relax over the river just steps from the parking lot. Walk down the river to the falls is not very difficult or lengthy. I would recommend this for anyone.

We enjoyed the hike and the Linville Falls. We stopped at the first vantage point, and headed back to the lot, since it is about a mile round trip. There are some uneven steps near the vantage point to be careful on.

Visited the area years ago, but still love it! It’s secluded, quiet town. There are nature walks/ hikes, lots of streams and waterfalls to see, nature’s beauty at her best!

The Linville river and Linville falls is a nice add-on activity for your trip to the NC mountains. The walk to the falls from the parking area is an easy 15 minute walk. Near the falls there is a nice stone-made viewing area. Many great...More

Only 1/4th of a mile from the parking lot to the river, be prepared it is a bit steep in areas. No restrooms, no trash cans, no benches along the trail.

The Linville River with Upper Falls were our favorite. Peaceful and so beautiful in an area of endless beauty.
