Best Kept Secrets: Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls, in the Pisgah National Forest and accessible via Gorges State Park, is a 150-foot waterfall near Sapphire, NC. The three-mile, round-trip is moderate to strenuous – including a series of wooden steps that take visitors up the steep grade. Older and slower folks, with good pacing, plenty of water and occasional stops, can make the trek over several hours. Sometimes mist from the falls create rainbows in the early morning or on a sunny afternoon.
