New additions to the selection of waterfalls include:

  • High Falls on the West Fork of the Tuckasegee River
  • Fall Creek Falls in the new Mayo River State Park
  • Reece Place, East Fork, and Graveley falls in the new Headwaters State Forest
  • Two waterfalls in Pinnacle Park in Sylva
  • Many gems hidden away in Pisgah and Nantahala national forests unknown to the general public
  • Waterfalls east of the mountains such as Carvers Falls in Fayetteville and Lanier and Fish Jump falls in Raven Rock State Park

From its comprehensive coverage, detailed trail directions, to its helpful photography tips and beauty ratings, the new North Carolina Waterfalls remains the definitive guide to its subject.

Praise:

“I visited the mountains last week (mid May) and with the help of this book I was able to find some really beautiful waterfalls. I never would have known they were there if not for the book. The directions were clear and easy to follow, and the information on where to park was extremely helpful. The best part about it was the fact that we had every waterfall to ourselves. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys unspoiled waterfalls.”
Amazon.com reviewer
“Any outdoors-oriented traveler planning a journey to North Carolina will find North Carolina's Waterfalls: A Hiking And Photography Guide packed with details on how to visit the area. Many of the state's best waterfalls receive little tourist attention: North Carolina Waterfalls remedies the lack of information, offering 'beauty ratings', accessibility details, maps, directions, and more. A lovely, comprehensive guide for destination-oriented outdoors adventurers.”
