It was a hike to get down to the falls but worth the view. I have seen whitewater falls which is much larger but this was neat.

We were taking the scenic route along US 64 in NC and were looking for Bridal Veil Waterfall so much we almost missed this one, as you can't see it from the highway. At the far entrance we made a last second decision to turn into the parking lot; sure glad we did. It was absolutely gorgeous (actually much more... More

Access to walk behind the falls. Stairs and paved walkway provide easy access. The falls and area around it are beautiful.

We Have driven past this waterfall on every yearly vacation, until last year. It is gorgeous!!!! You can't see it from 64, only when you park, and walk down. My kids love Dry Falls the most, because you can walk behind it. They also love the little cave behind the falls. We went in the pouring rain this year, just... More

Dry Falls is a wonderful waterfall. In the last few years it has been updated with hand rails, even steps and a viewing area for the handicapped. It's a short walk down to the waterfall which you can walk behind. It is a majestic setting!! Wear your workout clothes or something you do not mind getting a little wet!! Great... More

This is an uber-beautiful waterfall, and you can walk under it! Even in the rain, this was an easy and worthwhile stop on our trip down route 64. A must do.
