Lake Toxaway
Lake Toxaway is located southwest of Asheville in Transylvania County within the Nantahala National Forest. It has been a premier-family-resort destination since 1903 and today offers a wide variety of accommodations within several unique communities that surround the lake. Lake Toxaway is the state’s largest private lake, and has golf, tennis, fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, horseback riding and Hiking. Transylvania County is known as “land of the waterfalls,” and contains more than 470 miles of Hiking Trails and more than 250 waterfalls. Several Trails lead to breathtaking falls, awesome mountain vistas and parts of the Appalachian Trail. The WhiteWater Falls Scenic Area is where the Whitewater River drops more than 400 feet in a series of falls and cascades. Picnicking is available at the falls and one point offers fantastic views of the mountains and South Carolina Piedmont. Several public golf courses are in the immediate area, and winter ski resorts are just minutes away. Enjoy days of shopping at boutiques, arts and crafts shops and antique shops in nearby Brevard, Highlands and Cashiers. Lake Toxaway is also an easy drive to the city of Asheville and the Biltmore Estates. Anytime of the year is beautiful at Lake Toxaway, but fall is especially breathtaking when the mountains are painted with shades of gold, purple, crimson and yellow.

Gettin' There: Near Lake Toxaway, North Carolina From the junction of US64 & NC281, head North about 1 mile. Just past the Lake Toxaway Fire Station, turn left onto Cold Mountain Road. Eventually the paved road turns to gravel, and shortly after that you will see Shower Falls, a small waterfall on the right side of the road. At this point, start looking at the telephone poles, which are numbered in sequence. The trailhead is almost impossible to see from the raod, and there is so sign, but it is next to telephone pole #61 on the left side of the road. The road widens slightly at this point to allow room for a few cars to park on the shoulder.

Hike Description:

Once you find the trailhead, the Raven Rock Falls Trail is easy to follow. It is an nice, gradual descent just about the whole way. Although it is only about 3/4 of a mile to the Falls, there are alot of interesting features packed into this short trail.

Almost immediately upon hitting the trail, you can hear the sounds of water. On the right, you will pass by a small waterfall cascading down the rock. Soon after, you will approach a larger waterfall dropping over a rock overhang. A wooden bridge takes you underneath the rock and behind the waterfall. Watch your head here!

The wonderful sounds of waterfalls start to get loader as you near the base of Raven Rock Falls. This very impressive and scenic waterfall drops about 80-ft down the side of Raven Rock Mountain.

After enjoying Raven Rock Falls, return on the trail the same way you came.
