Our favorite hikes are ones that involve waterfalls, especially when a waterfall is the destination.  We might be what you call waterfall’oholics.

We love heading out a nice 3-5 mile trail, knowing that waiting for us down the trail is a gorgeous Blue Ridge Waterfall.  Our kids love to play in the water, hunt for crawdads, and relax on the rocks.  My wife and I love to take photos, and enjoy watching our kids have a blast.

The waterfall is generally our stopping point or midway point if possible, where we also break out the snacks or our lunch and eat.  We’ve also enjoyed meeting many different people hanging around the waterfalls as well.

Below you’ll find guides to our favorite waterfall trails in the Blue Ridge:
