Beautiful Pearson's Falls is located in the foothills of Western North Carolina and is comprised of 268 acres of virgin forest, spring-fed streams and a 90 ft. waterfall.

Walk along the glen trail and feel the cool, playful mist from the waterfall that often is in the air. On the way up to the falls, be sure to stop and observe over 200 species of fern, flowering plants, algae and mosses in the wildflower preserve. Or you could sit on one of the benches and feel the peacefulness of this natural sanctuary as you listen to the water and the birds.

Enjoy this beautiful video of this sanctuaryin the fall.
