Paradise Falls

12296 NC-281 Tuckasegee, NC

Not for the faint-of-heart. This hidden gem is one of the best secret swimming holes in the southeast. This hike is steep and hard. You will be crab-crawling or holding onto trees on the way down. This is quite a drive and hard to find – Follow 281 north, and you will go around Tanasee Creek Lake on the left and Wolf Creek Lake on the right. You will find a grassy parking area with the sign “Danger: Water Levels Can Change,” which is the public entrance to Paradise Falls.

Length: 1 mile round trip

Difficulty: Very Difficult, Strenuous
