Bella and I hiked to Lower Whitewater Falls yesterday afternoon. The trail starts off on Duke Energy land at the Bad Creek parking lot. You follow the Foothills trail to start, then follow a gravel road for a bit, and finally end on an old logging road which leads down to the overlook. It took us about 2-3 hours to complete. I believe the entire is trip is about 4 miles (~2 miles each way).
