This trail is outside of the Highlands off NC 106. Glen Falls is a semi-strenuous one mile trail going to 3 sixty foot cascading falls. The walk to each of the falls isn’t too bad because it’s downhill, the walk back from the falls is the strenuous part. The trail has some stairs to climb, and other parts of the trail have knarly roots to climb over, but it is worth it to see the scenic beauty of these falls. Some helpful hints when walking this trail: be sure to take water with you; trekking poles are a good idea; don’t wear open toed shoes; some parts of the trail are slippery due to water overspray and rain, so if the weather looks bad, you may want to do the hike on a different day. It is a quiet trail and there was no one else on it the day we went. If you like getting away from the buzz of crowds and seeing the wonders of nature, this is the perfect trail for that. Just pace yourself on the way back.
