Moore Cove Falls

With Its Frozen Cascade In The Winter And Its Wildflower Variety In The Spring And Summer, This Waterfall Offers Year-round Sights.

You can step behind the flow of these falls, a sheer drop of 50 feet named after former Mills River Township Justice of the Peace Adam Q. Moore, who bought 50 acres bordering Looking Glass Creek in 1877 before selling them in 1880. The property won over a much more high-profile owner 11 years later: George W. Vanderbilt purchased the land, which joined nearby properties as part of his Pisgah Forest. The falls and its associated creek retained Moore’s name.
