E.B. Jeffress Park is a beautiful area to sit and enjoy the views, take in a short hike to
the lively Cascades and have a picnic. The nature trail to the Cascades
leads from the parking area and is a half-mile long. The trail is a loop
and is a moderate hiking trail. There are signs on the trail that describe
the trees and plants along the way. Falls Creek easily glides along near
parts of the trail until it reaches the quick decent down the Cascades.
E.B. Jeffress Park is in honor of the man who worked successfully to convince
the federal government to position the Blue Ridge Parkway on its current
location. E.B. Jeffress Park provides a drinking fountain, picnic tables,
restrooms and the Cascades Nature Trail.
