Mill Shoals Falls

Short, mostly easy walk. Balsam Grove community.

County: Transylvania 

Driving directions:

From Beech Gap on the Blue Ridge Parkway, head south on NC 215 for 9.35 miles. Park on the narrow shoulder on the right (west) side of the road just south of Living Waters Ministry. This is 7.7 miles north of US 64.


Walking directions:

The waterfall sits behind the house and is partly visible from the road. You can take the short path down to the base. Bird Rock Falls is about 0.2 miles downstream, but there are a few steps and a steeply sloping rock to negotiate to see it.
