Pearson’s Falls and Glen is a top natural attraction in Polk County, NC, hosting over 20,000 visitors each year.  We are located in the foothills of Western North Carolina off Hwy.  176, between the towns of Tryon and Saluda.

 

This unique botanical preserve is comprised of 268 acres of rich cove forest, granite, spring-fed streams, and a moderate 1/4 mile trail to a 90 ft. waterfall.  We boast having over 200 species of rare wildflowers and plants.  Mosses, lichens, shrubs, and a variety of trees reside in this Glen, which is classified as a deciduous climax forest.  Pearson’s Falls is a perfect stop when visiting the area.  We have picnic facilities and can accommodate all types of groups and cyclists.

Beautiful little spot to stop for some pictures and have a picnic. I thought it was odd there was a charge to get in but I guess for the upkeep it makes sense. The man at the gate was very pleasant and helpful. Nice for a 2 hour ordeal.

This was amazing and well worth a stop if you love beautiful nature. Bug spray is not a bad idea.

We made a 3 day trip out of driving from Central Florida to North Carolina for a wedding and looked a few quick pit stops on the way back. This fit the bill. For $5 a person, safe parking, a glorified portapotty, and a quarter mile walk, you have a beautiful stop. There are great places to sit and have a picnic. No pets except service animals are allowed.

Pearson's Falls is a beautiful place to visit. Walking trails that are gorgeous take you right to a waterfall. Took my 5 year old and he was able to enjoy the outdoors while keeping up. Highly recommend stopping by to see if in the area.
