Looking Glass Falls in the Pisgah National Forest - easy to reach since it's roadside.

Waterfalls take on an extra magical setting during winter cold snaps in the North Carolina mountains. Not only are the ice formations incredible, but the absence of crowds make for a very personal experience. The waterfalls featured below are in the Brevard area, and they are all less than an hour's drive from downtown Asheville. Since they are in lower elevations, you can usually access them since snowfall and icy roads are rare. You should always watch the weather forecast, and wear shoes with good traction since the trails can be icy in spots. And don't venture out on frozen sections of water near the base of the waterfalls, since the ice could be thin.

Moore Cove Falls is accessed by a 1.5 roundtrip easy hike. It's located near Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest. After many days of below freezing temperatures, the frozen mound of water at the base towers six feet and resembles a volcano.

This is not a waterfall, but Andrews Geyser in Old Fort turned into a volcano of ice!
