Best Picture Locations

Tons of great rock formations, smaller waterfalls and even a nice overlook right before you arrive at the falls...but it still takes second place to Apple Orchard Falls itself. Picture taken during dry season.

Additional Information:

Apple Orchard Falls Trail is a great hike for the beginner or expert. You can get to the main waterfall from either Arcadia at the base of the mountain or Blue Ridge Parkway from the ridge. I've done both treks and they're both worth doing equally.
