Jagged Rock Falls

View Roadside. Near Nantahala Gorge.

County: Swain 

Driving directions:

Directly across Wayah Road from Old River Road (see Whiteoak Falls) is a 40-foot waterfall that is impressive after a good rain but not worth stopping for in dry weather. The rock here is jagged, just like that at Whiteoak Falls. The countless mini-ledges break the flow of the waterfall, creating a great opportunity for photographing tight compositions.
