Do you love the idea of spending a few hours hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains to see waterfalls? How about hiking to waterfalls where you can swim and jump into deep swimming holes? You can now join NCOA on a one of a one-of-a-kind tour. NCOA alleviates the chore of driving around for hours in the NC Mountains looking for the perfect, safe places to take the family for a fun summer day outside playing in the water.
Guests jump in our shuttle to enjoy a worry-free stress-free day of exploring two off the beaten path places. Those who need car seats should contact us for options. Our first stop features a deep swim hole in the Toe River. The second stop is a waterfall located close to the road via a short, very steep trail. This stop features a small cliff jump into the waterfall pool below!
Children and adults alike love seeing critters swimming around them in the crystal-clear waters of the Toe and spring fed waterfalls. If you like the idea of snorkeling to see what lies beneath the surface, then we have the perfect snorkel for sale in our river outpost: We also feature our river ecology snorkel trips for those wanting to get up close and personal with the critters under water.
