Pearson's Falls and Glen
Pearson’s Falls and Glen is a top natural attraction in Polk County, NC, hosting over 20,000 visitors each year. We are located in the foothills of Western North Carolina off Hwy. 176, between the towns of Tryon and Saluda.
This unique botanical preserve is comprised of 275 acres of rich cove forest, granite, spring-fed streams, and a moderate 1/4 mile trail to a 90 ft. waterfall. We boast having over 310 species of rare wildflowers and plants. Mosses, lichens, shrubs, and a variety of trees reside in this Glen, which is classified as a deciduous climax forest. Pearson’s Falls is a perfect stop when visiting the area. We have picnic facilities and can accommodate all types of groups and cyclists.
Pearson's Falls is owned and maintained by The Tryon Garden Club, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
