As the previous post mentioned, Elk River Falls is beautiful and easy to reach any time of year. Linville Falls is just as pretty but a little longer walk. From the Linville Falls Visitors Center, on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the walk takes about 30 minutes and you have several choices; above the falls, below the falls, and more. Below are a few pics of the trail. The above links will take you to pictures of the falls. This is a short drive from Banner Elk and Grandfather Mountain and a short day-trip for Banner Haven guests.
