Mitchell Falls is a 25-foot  waterfall located on private property in Yancey County, North Carolina on the slope of Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain in the Appalachian Mountain chain, and highest point in the eastern United States. Both the falls and the mountain are named for Elisha Mitchell, a professor who, while confirming his measurements of the mountain, fell over a rocky ledge above the falls to his death on June 27, 1857. The falls are located on private property. Access to the falls is normally prohibited but has been allowed in the past to groups by special permission. As the landowner has been a strong, environmentally-conscious steward for the tract of land on which the falls lie, people wishing to visit the falls are highly encouraged to respect this, and not to trespass in an attempt to see the falls but wait until such a trip is organized .  Source
