Land Bridge Falls is not on the 500 List and in some circles it is considered the upper drop of Wintergreen Falls. The entire section from Upper Wintergreen to the base of Wintergreen is a series of drops making it hard to separate one waterfall from the next. The fact the entire river is jammed into a chute along this stretch and swept under a natural bridge makes it easier for me to count this as a separate waterfall. Located between Upper Wintergreen Falls and Wintergreen, Land Bridge Falls is one of many amazing drops on a section of the Toxaway River. To read about the hike, see The Toxaway River Shuttle.
