Beautiful!

Just a quick drive thru type attraction, but worth a stop and some photos none the less. Beautiful roadside attraction.

Then you might as well check it out but, I wouldn't make a special trip for this one. It is novel in that you can drive behind it but Bridal Veil is not nearly as impressive as other falls in the area.

It's pleasant and you can drive behind it. The falls were a trickle when I was there, or to be fair, about 15-20 trickles. My toddler walked up to it and put her hands on it. It would have been much nicer if it had the volume shown in the pictures.

Nice spot along US-64 near Highlands where you can drive behind this small waterfall. Parking area available for those wanting to take pictures.

Found along the Highland Highway (Rt 64) between Franklin and Highlands NC. Unless it has been a really rainy month this falls is but a trickle most of the summer months. The road under the falls is just a turnoff from the main road and room for only one car or small SUV. Many more beautiful falls in the area... More

Bridal Veil is a very highly traveled tourist destination because it is right off the road. Also, the best time to see it is when there is above normal rainfall. Not very impressive other wise.

After a rain the falls are so full and beautiful and you can drive under them... or. .. when it is icy they are stunning. I live about 20 minutes from them and enjoy them 4-5 times a week going down the Gorge Road.

Have visited previous when there was more water from this falls. The falls was still very nice and it is neat that you can drive behind the falls. There is only room for one person to drive behind the falls. The bad part of any of the falls in Highlands is that you only have one shot to pull over... More

The time we went there was really nothing there. Pretty disappointing, especially after seeing the other 3 falls on the same road. You do get to drive behind the falls, and perhaps if there had been more water it would have been better. We didn't even take any pictures, it was that pathetic.
