Waterfall Trip Reports

Here you will find links to the adventures of waterfallers from all walks of life. Some of these trips are more suited to hard-core waterfallers who like to hike on the edge, while others are for those who don’t even like to get out of the car. The one thing they all have in common is that they were all written by folks who love visiting North Carolina’s waterfalls.

This page is open to anyone who wishes to provide links to their waterfall adventures. I ask only that you do not include any excessive commercialism in the report. If the report is little more than an advertisement for something you’re trying to sell, I probably won’t provide the link for you.

Please do not send me a link to the home page of your blog or website. I’m afraid I don’t have time to wade through sites looking for appropriate reports. Instead, please send me a direct link to the trip report.

If you would like to have your trip report included, but you do not have a website or blog to host it on, please send it to me as a Word or PDF document and I will host it on this site for you.

All trip reports must include your name and the date you made the trip.
