Greenland Creek Falls
5572 Cold Mountain Rd
Canyoneering Outside Asheville, NCLooking for adventure between the eats and treats of Asheville, NC? Want to really 'experience' a waterfall? After a moderate hike through Cold Mountain Gap lays Greenland Creek falls approximately 45 minutes southwest of Brevard, NC - the site of Pura Vida Adventures’ Cougar Canyon Adventure Canyoneering Trip.
Varying terrain and conditions – hiking lowland, flatland, hiking vertically through tropical bush, and even wading through 300 m of knee-high mica-rich water - are experienced en route to the top of this 75 ft waterfall rappel.
Condensed into a 3-4 hour guided trip, no special equipment is required other than a pair of drain-able shoes (runners or minimalists will suffice), gym or hiking clothes, and the ability to follow instructions from your professional guide. We brought light rain jackets for sporadic showers, but unnecessary since we were having a blast wading, rappelling, and getting sprayed from the falls!
