The 2018 High Falls release will occur between 10am and 4pm on the following dates:
April 7, April 8, June 9, July 14, July 28, August 11, and August 25.
High Falls (sometimes called Cullowhee Falls) is located below the dam on Lake Glenville. The trail to view the falls was originally created for kayakers daring to face the challenging Class IV and V rapids that occur as the dam releases take place.
On a typical day, the double 150ft falls are serene as they cascade into the Tuckaseegee Gorge below (shown). As the dam releases, the falls become an impressive force of raging water. Remember: Safety First! Don't stand under the falls as the releases quickly and there is little chance of dodging it.
