You need to get out of your car to take special shots from a side angle. This was my best photo. From the front was just so so that day. It really does look like a bridal veil. It has a small area you can park to get out. Be careful for the busy road when standing there taking photos... More

Was able to park our motorcycles under the waterfall ledge and got some great pictures.. Very cool spot especially after a hard rain that day.

The old road once went under the falls. Now there is a turn off, but you can't miss it on the right leaving Highlands.

If you have travelers who have a hard time getting onto trails, this is a no-brainier . You literally can drive your car under it. (But please do not park there as someone in front of us did) . Park to the side so all can view. Lovely.

It really cascades over when it rains, however, it is a nice fall to visit anytime. Right off US 64, you can drive right behind the falls. A really neat visit.

This is a great little spot to stop and take a photo of your family driving under the waterfall. Kids and dogs can put their heads out the window as you take a photo - just watch out for on coming cars in the road. Wish there was a more protective area to take that shot - but still alot... More

More water "cascades" off of my house during a rainfall. If you are going just to see this fall, don't. However, Dry falls are just down the road and are a must see.

Along route 64 just outside Highlands, you will come upon Bridal Veil Falls. It is a very small falls but picturesque and to make it more interesting you can drive right under it, even tho it is a very short drive so you don't even have to get out of the car to enjoy it!

Ride around this spot when enroute to Dry Falls. Don't stop here. It's a warm up act. And lots of fun for kids and adults alike. Bikers too.

Always makes us stop and look; sometime you can drive under the falls; it depends on how recently a rock has fallen.
