This waterfall is highly dependent upon water flow. In times of little rain, these falls are not impressive. Just a trickle goes over the top. When it's wet outside (lots previous rain) then the falls look more like a waterfall, but still not all that impressive. Its claim to fame is the fact that you can drive your car behind... More

The highway goes right by these falls, and you can even drive under them! The parking lot next to the falls was FULL of giant holes, so be careful when you pull in. We had fun catching water, climbing down to the bottom of the falls, and taking pictures. No steps or climbing required to enjoy the falls.

OK, so you can drive to the backside of the falls, but it is not a tall or wide falls, so I was not impressed.

These falls are a must to see as you drive to highlands . You do not have to hike to see them just adore their magnificence as you drive by. I love photos so you can stop and take a picture there.

If it is on your way then by all means go to see Bridal Veil Falls, but don't go out of your way. Your time will be better spent at Dry Falls which is only a short drive away. The main attraction here is that you can drive behind the falls but every time I have been there cars have... More

The falls are very small and you can drive your car behind them but that is about the only thing that is unique about them. The line can be quite long to drive behind them.

We visited Bridal Veil Falls in October. The falls were barely more than a trickle. It really wasn't that impressive. You can drive back around the falls so that is kind of cool. There is nowhere to park so it gets congested when people just randomly stop and start trying to take pictures. Dry Falls is right down the road.... More

Lovely waterfall right on the road. You can even drive under the falls. A quick, easy way to see this attraction even if you're in a hurry, the weather is bad, or you're handicapped as you don't even have to get out of the car!

These falls are right alongside the roadway (hwy 64) and are easily seen right from your vehicle. Anyone that is mobility challenged will be able to enjoy this beauty. The number of vehicles that can use the pull-off is very limited, so you may have to pass by, turn around (good luck with that) and come back.
