Whitewater Falls, at 411 feet high, are one of the highest pure waterfalls in the South. Over 3.5 miles, the Whitewater River drops 1,500 feet. The two largest drops (Upper and Lower Whitewater Falls) are accessible.
The Forest Service Recreation Area for Whitewater Falls is less than a 30 minute trip from our Retreat location – bring your family to the mountains with you and send them off hiking while you enjoy your new fiber friends! The falls are quite beautiful in every season, but especially in fall, winter, and early spring.
There are many more waterfalls, lakes & hiking opportunities in Sapphire Valley – come explore!! Click on the right hand side bar link for the retreat registration information.
