Linville Falls Things to Do: 8 reviews and 28 photos
Although there are only a few miles of hiking trails at Linville Falls, there is a lot to see here - you get a lot of scenic bang for your hiking buck. The Erwin's View Trail starts from behind the visitor center and crosses the Linville River and after a ways, there is a view of the upper falls - twin falls, actually. Then, back to the trail and on to Chimney View. Here, there is a good view of the main falls. There are two more views on this trail, Erwin's View, which is a more distant view of the main falls and to Linville Gorge, and Gorge View with a view of the gorge downstream from the falls.
The Plunge Basin Trail also starts from the visitor center and splits into two paths. The Plunge Basin Overlook is a close up view of the main falls, and Linville Gorge goes down to the base of the falls. Neither path is more than a mile, although a little more strenuous than the Erwin's View Trail.
