The trail was not very difficult. For the most part, very even with a few areas that was slightly rocky. The walk on the edge of the river was well marked and safe to take great pictures and videos of the rolling water. Elevations weren’t challenging and the trip end to end and enjoying the great view took a couple hours.
Carter Falls isn’t one of high elevation. The river area is a series of rolling drops. The sounds and views of the water were extra special with the build up from rains earlier in the week. This gave quite the presentation on this hike. Continuing along the trail, you reach and area where an old power house existed. The power house and flues are long gone, but remnants of the flue supports along the river and the power house foundation still remain. While the falls subside in this area, there’s still smaller falls to enjoy.
A great morning to take in a little nature and experience more Elkin, NC has to offer.
