Toxaway Falls, North Carolina

Sometimes, a waterfall can be so close, and yet so far away. As you’re driving along US-64 in North Carolina, you’ll pass right over the Toxaway River only a few feet from the beginning of Toxaway Falls. There are no places to pull off on the road to get a better view, so give that idea up from the beginning. There is no place to stop on the one side of the river, so that’s also an issue. The only “view” is from a restaurant parking lot near the falls. You can’t get any closer to the falls because of private residences. Oh well, some waterfalls have to be nearly unobtainable. Who knows, ten years from now the view might be different.


  1. The falls will be found on the Toxaway River, which US-64 intersects in Transylvania County, North Carolina.
