One of the easiest waterfalls to park and walk to.

Silver Run Falls is a waterfall a few miles south of the town of Cashiers, North Carolina on Highway 107S . It is popular with locals and tourists alike. The falls are located after a flat, 200 yard trail.

Additionally, there is a second secret falls located above Silver Run. On the left side of the cliff face of the falls, just inside the woods, there is a slope of granite with many roots for handholds leading to the top of the falls. Follow the trail up top until you hear the second falls on your right.
