Discover Glen Falls, a captivating triple waterfall near Highlands, offering four scenic stops on the approximately 2-mile round-trip hike in the Nantahala National Forest. From Highlands, head down NC Highway 106 for approximately 1.7 miles. Look for the sign to Glen Falls on the left and upon turning, the gravel road to the falls (SR1618) immediately veers off to the right. The road leads to the parking area after about 1 mile. When you reach the trail head take the trail to the left to begin descending the trail to the multiple observation decks. Approximately .5 miles from the parking area, you will come to the first observation deck for the upper waterfall section, plummeting about 70 feet. Then, continue another 1/3 of a mile to the middle falls, dropping 60 feet. A little further down is the third small section of the waterfall that descends about 15 feet.
