This is a great in-town hike if you have a few hours available. There are two named waterfalls and a cascade on this well-worn stream-side trail. The first waterfall on New Years Creek (yes, the actual name), Glen Burney Falls, is the site of a 1931 tragedy in which a heroine emerged from Charlotte (Google 'Waterfall Horror').

Hiked the trail last weekend to take some Fall pictures. Beautiful scenery and waterfalls. Wear hiking shoes recommended, and plan for an enjoyable day in nature
Semi-challenging all down hill for over 1.6 miles and then the walk back up. Past storms have taken there toll on this trail lots of down trees and blocked views. The falls are viewable after a log climb. Wear sensible shoes this is not a casual walk.

This is a beautiful trail and waterfall. More difficult hike than we expected and I would definitely say you need to have good walking or hiking shoes on! We loved it and enjoyed the beauty of the area.
If your in downtown Blowing Rock and looking for Something to do, this is a great trail. It's short, easy trail down, but just remember that you have to hike back out. It took us about 1 hour total. Down was easy, coming back was a little challenging. Be prepared to sweat.
this is an amazing hike right from downtown blowing rock. Be prepared for the 1.6 miles down in order to see all of the falls- glen burned and glen marie are the farthest. So that means 1.6 miles uphill to get back. All worth it!
This is a bit challenging hike but definitely doable. It's right off downtown Blowing Rock. It is worth your time and most ages can tackle this. We have done it in rain and sunny weather. Just some sturdy shoes and water and off you go!
