Dill Falls is a 50-foot waterfall in Nantahala National Forest in Jackson County. It’s a short hike from the road – and you can see both Upper and Lower Dill Falls on Tanasee Creek via two different trails from the same parking spot. It's one of many waterfalls along the Forest Heritage Scenic Byway.
You can walk on some boulders up for a closer look. It's a beautiful setting, so take some time to soak it in. Since there are no signs for this waterfall, you will often be there by yourself.
Hike uphill back to your car and turn left to head up the mountain about 1/4 mile to Upper Dill Falls. It's not as tall, but just as beautiful, tucked into a lush cove. To reach the base of the falls, look for a side trail on the left with a couple of ribbons tied on trees. It's before you reach the falls. Side note: National Forest land on the west side of Highway 215 in Jackson County is Nantahala Forest – the east side of 215 is Pisgah National Forest in Transylvania County.
