Getting There From:
- Blue Ridge Parkway take NC Hwy 19 towards Cherokee. You will see a
sign for the pull-off on the left hand side approximately a mile and a half down
the twisting road. Be careful as you will have a blind corner at the point
where you will be approaching the turn-out in order to park your vehicle.
Comments:Soco Falls is a beautiful waterfall where two separate
branches meet to a final 40 or 50 foot drop. The area has recently
been developed for easier viewing access including a fabulous wooden deck.
Unfortunately, Soco Falls is a subject that doesn't really present itself
well in a photograph, but it is a very accessible trail that we recommend to
everyone. Can't wait to retake
this photo in addition to Woodfin Falls located about 5-10 miles down the
parkway between Highway 19 and NC 23/74 that is not visible from the Parkway
when foliage is present.
