Excellent hike! My brother and I hiked this together, we go hiking a lot throughout the Blue Ridge and we loved this one. We took a harder (but still easy) route crossing over the first bridge that you see. If you keep going straight it is a really easy big open path. The Cascades is beautiful and seems like a fun place to go swimming in, so pack a bathing suit. We went in late afternoon and didn't see too many people out. Totally recommend if you want an easy hiking day!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Cascade Falls - Lower Trail
I've been wanting to get out to Cascades Falls for awhile. Friends from church mentioned they were going to head out. No better way than to see the trail than with friends. My family packed up our bags and headed out. Everyone had a great time. We took the Lower Falls Trail. Sophia, our 12-week old, had a great time on her first hike. She was a champ. Chase, our 2 year old, had a good time visiting the "waterball," singing songs along the way. Due to some dry weather, the falls were not a full flow, but it was still beautiful. I hope to get back in the winter to see the falls frozen.
