A Cascading Beauty – Whitewater Falls
Nantahala National Forest, North Carolina, USA
Upper Whitewater Falls is located in the western part of the state near the South Carolina and Georgia borders. It’s acclaimed to be the highest waterfall east of the Rockies with a fall of 411 feet. Lower Whitewater Falls in South Carolina’s falls is another 400 feet.
It’s the king of waterfalls in this waterfall-rich area, and easily accessible by a 1/4 mile walkway – and is wheelchair friendly. There is also a platform just 154 steps down from the main viewing point – ideal for photographers!
