The Linville Falls recreation area and visitor information center provides many activities
for motorists traveling along the Parkway. This area provides picnic grounds,
self-guided trails, campgrounds, campfire talks, nature walks, trout fishing
and rest rooms. There is a self-guided trail to the magnificent Linville
Falls. The Linville River flows innocently into a small set of upper falls and then
plunges over the lower falls with a powerful force into the Linville Gorge. The river is responsible
for cutting out the Linville Gorge over a long period of time. Several
overlooks extend from the self-guided trail to observe the beautiful upper
and lower falls. The exquisite sound of the falls along with the natural
beauty of the forest with trees up to 150 feet tall brings delight to
all those who experience it.
