The double-tiered falls are smaller than others in the area, but still provide a picturesque setting to be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. The first section drops eight feet down a tiered cascade, then flows another 25 feet before coming to the second tier, at which point it plunges another 15 feet!
Photographer Abigail Van Buren writes: “The hike to Pleasant Ridge Falls is an easy one, lined with mountain laurel and moss. Upon approaching the falls, cool air flows off the rushing water. There is even a handmade bench constructed from a downed tree that sits atop the first tier. It is truly a unique scene to be enjoyed by all ages.”
