Toxaway River Trail Access
The Toxaway River is usually first seen from Hwy 64 in Lake Toxaway as you pass over it in a vehicle. There’s a nice wide shoulder on the dam side to pull over, park, and take a look. Lake Toxaway is on the upper side of the road. Toxaway Falls then spills and slides over some very colorful bedrock in a 240′ change in elevation before the river disappears into the forest. In 1916, the dam gave way and Lake Toxaway came gushing down the gorge, stripping away the dense vegetation and exposing the bedrock along the falls and below.
