Pearson’s Falls in May
Each month, Pearson’s Falls near the town of Tryon, North Carolina, takes on a different persona. The rains have been infrequent this month, so the flow is reduced. The fresh green of the new foliage contrasts well with the ancient granite rocks.
The creek below the main falls offers many smaller falls and cascades.
On the quarter mile walk to the falls, you will pass rock faces dripping with spring water. and covered with tender green plants.
A stone bridge over the creek offers the perfect place to stop and admire the breathtaking beauty of the gorge.
