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.

This is a "drive through" waterfall... It is on the way from Dry Falls towards Highlands, NC. Our children enjoyed driving under the falls.

On the second rainy day, the falls were huge over the road. The next day after the rain, not as large but so very pretty. Definitely worth a stop and a photo!
