Triple Falls

More Photos

Nestled within a thick pine forest, the Little River forms Triple Falls, three cascades that total 120 feet. This cascade was featured in the movie “Last of the Mohicans” filmed in 1992. This is the second of a series of falls within a 1 ˝ mile stretch of the Little River. High Falls can be found upstream, and Hooker Falls can be found downstream.

Directions to the falls:
  1. From the Junction of US 276 and US 64 in Brevard, drive south on US 276 for approximately 10.8 miles to Cascade Lake Road.
  2. Turn left onto Cascade Lake Road and drive approximately 2.5 miles to Staton Road.
  3. Turn right onto Staton Road (look for the AGFA Plant sign) and drive 2.3 miles to the parking area just past the bridge over the Little River.
  4. Turn left into the parking area.
  5. Cross over Staton Road. The trail begins on the other side of the bridge over the Little River to the left.
