Turley Falls

Turley Falls is a high series of cascades, a couple of which near the middle and bottom are nearly vertical. From photos, it appears the forest has been cleared around the falls, making them more open to the sky than they would otherwise be.

The falls are located on private property. No public access is allowed. However, it is reported that they can be seen from a point nearby on Brightwater Drive, SR 1215 off of Turley Falls Road and US 64 between Hendersonville and Brevard, NC, although I have not personally confirmed this view.
