Bridal Veil Falls is a great waterfall especially if you have limited mobility. You can drive your car behind the waterfall and get a unique view.

We saw Bridal Veil Falls in late March. Very little water running through the falls. The road that goes behind the falls was closed due to danger from possible falling rocks. too bad, because part of the fun there was to go behind the falls.

This is a great waterfall if you aren't up for hiking. You don't even have to get out of your vehicle! It is beautiful year round, a favorite place to take out of town visitors!

These falls are RIGHT next to the highway, so you don't even need to get out of your car to see them. That's pretty convenient, especially in the winter months where it can get pretty cold in the NC mountains.

This is somewhere where you can just stop by and look at. Not really worth a trip out to it! Also it's pretty unsafe with it being on a highway. With all the traffic.

This is a very unique waterfall in that you can drive your car right underneath and view from a very different perspective. Following the road which leads there is a curvy journey but absolutely gorgeous in Autumn! If you find yourself nearby, it's a fun little side-stop!

The water was not flowing at full capacity, I was told. But it was fun to drive our car under the falls and have water fall on our car. Definitely a must if you have a sunroof to look through.

We thought this would be cool, to drive under the falls, but there was barely a trickle of water, and it was a pull-off on the road to 'drive under'. Not worth it unless you are already in the area.

This is the third time I have passed by Bridal Veil Falls and there has been no more than a trickle of water.

When we were there, the rest of the falls were raging from recent rain, but still this was a mere trickle. We heard many people saying they could not wait to see this and drive underneath, but I am afraid they were very disappointed. Thank goodness it does not matter because there are so many awesome fall nearby.
