Duggers Falls

Short, easy hike. Near Linville Falls.

County: Burke 

Driving directions:

From Milepost 316.5 of the Blue Ridge Parkway (1 mile north of the US 221 intersection), a spur road leads 1.4 miles to a large parking area and a small visitor center. This is also the trailhead for Linville Falls, a beautiful waterfall that isn’t accessible for persons with mobility issues.


Walking directions:

Walk to the upper end of the parking area, away from the visitor center. With your back to the visitor center, look to the right for a concrete cylinder about four feet high and five feet in diameter. An obvious paved path goes to the right and ascends a few feet to a side path on the left. The side path leads a short distance to a footbridge over Duggers Creek just below the falls. You can make a loop by continuing on the path, but the remainder of the loop is more difficult.
