Connestee Falls

 (Rate this)

Connestee Falls is a roadside attraction just south of Brevard, North Carolina. One of my guidebooks says that you used to be able to hike down to the cascade and the bottom of the falls, but now there’s only an overlook. The gated community reserves access to explore the falls (if there’s any access at all). That said, it’s still worth checking out if you’re passing through the area.

There’s not much to tell here. Just navigate to the map point below. There’s a port-o-let in the parking lot, but no real restrooms outside of the real estate office. Just park and walk the 50 feet to the overlook. Then go about your business.

It’s a real shame you can’t explore the area. This is a convergence of several waterfalls in a single small ravine. It would be fun to climb to the bottom and see the water coming down from several different angles. I have half a mind to sneak down there around sunrise one rainy Sunday to get a photo.

This is not to be confused with Lake Conestee Nature Park in Greenville, South Carolina.
