The top of Mile High Falls is about 100 feet less than a mile in elevation. That’s the only remarkable thing I can say about the waterfall. In high water, I’m sure it would be a sight, but in normal flows it’s just another undistinguished small falls in a region full of thousands. About 20 feet high, the waterfall slides down a mossy rock face. Back when I was working on the second edition of North Carolina Waterfalls, I barely would have mentioned this waterfall, much less sought to name it. But given the current approach by so many waterfallers to name every discordance in the river profile, I figured it best to establish a reference since many people who visit Alyssa Falls and Campbell Creek Falls would pass by it.
