Maps of the Catawba Falls Area
Here are the maps covering the Catawba Falls area of the Pisgah National Forest's Grandfather Ranger District.
Here is our interactive GPS map of the area with downloadable data. This map shows all the official Forest Service trails, locations of the waterfalls, parking, and other landmarks.
The trailhead area is shown on this map, but the trail itself is not visible. Look at the very bottom of the Mt. Mitchell side of the map, below I-40. The trail starts at the end of Catawba River Road (which is shown), and leads to the steep section of the river just past where Chestnut Branch splits off, above the label for Allison Ridge.
The lower and upper falls are #26 and #27 on this excellent regional map, along with directions to the parking area and to the falls. The trail is not shown.
