Mingo Falls: One of the Tallest Waterfalls in Western North Carolina

The trail to Mingo Falls is only 1/4 mile, but heads up about 160 stairs, levels off, and ends at a small wooden bridge that crosses Mingo Creek in front of the falls.Mingo Falls

Mingo Falls Bridge

This bridge serves as a great viewing area.

At 120 feet tall, the waterfall is one of the tallest and most spectacular in the southern Appalachians. To get there, follow Big Cove Road out of Cherokee approximately 4.5 miles where you’ll see a small sign to make a right turn into a campground where the trailhead is.
