Pearson's Falls and Glen, Saluda NC

I detoured on my way home from Brevard to re-visit another of my favorite places.  With great foresight, the Tryon Garden Club purchased this property in 1931 to protect it from development, and have maintained and managed it ever since.  This North Carolina Heritage Area supports an amazing variety of biological and scenic diversity.  The trails and forests are renowned for their rare and prolific wildflowers, and the cascades and primary falls are really impressive. Kudos to the non-profit Tryon Garden Club for an excellent job of preserving this gem.  The admission fee of $5 is used to maintain the property and donations are tax deductible.  Put it on your "must visit" list.
