Visible from the highway, this 120-foot waterfall sometimes displays a rainbow in the afternoon light and has been known to freeze up during the winter.

2.5 mi. west of Highlands on U.S. 64. Visible from the highway, which at one time routed traffic under the falls. Height 120 ft.

Seriously, Bridal Veil Falls is the easiest waterfall to see in North Carolina. I have visited several, but this one is right on the road side. In fact, you can actually drive under this waterfall!! It's worth the stop if you're driving down Highway 64.

Compared to the other falls we saw this was pretty underwhelming - may have just been low water but it was more of a trickle than a "fall"...

We search out these falls but where disappointed. Maybe in the olden days you could drive behind them, but now you don't and will miss them going by if you blink. The falls look like rock seapage.

We went in August so it was only a little more than a trickle. It was on our route so we pulled off so that the kids could look up through the moon roof at it! I think after a heavy rain or in the spring this would be much more impressive.

The Falls are right beside the road. There is a pull off so you can take a picture and you can even drive behind the Falls. There was very little water when we were there Aug 13, 2015.

You can drive by and see this without getting out of the car. Too many other amazing falls and mountains to see to do much more than that.

At this time of year hardly any water was falling. We were disappointed. It did not look like any of the pictures we had seen.

Bridal Veil Falls is an interesting waterfall because you can drive your car under the waterfall. The water coming over the waterfall's ledge is not much more than a trickle. I would not make a special trip to see this waterfall, but it's on U.S. 64 west of Highlands, N.C., a route that has Dry Falls on it that is... More

Easy, no hiking. Just off the road. Went in August, so there was not much water at all and truly looked like a bridal veil. Did not look like the picture show, which must be in the wetter seasons.
