Emily Falls is only about 12' high, but it's really worth seeing and is one the entire family can visit. The easy hike is just over 1/4 mile and the pool is even deep enough for kids to splash around in.
The beauty rating is a 5. The hike difficulty is 3 with a short bank scramble, and the distance is about half a mile.
Emily Falls has a nice pool and beach, a perfect place for kids and the young at heart to play. If you want to get in more walking a short drive away is The Park at Flat Rock which has a nice walking trail and a unique playground. Of course, nearby is Flat Rock Village with great galleries and nice shops to enjoy.source: NCWaterfalls.com
