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.

This water falls is right off the highway. In fact, you can drive your car behind the falls which we did. This is definitely one to be enjoyed by all.

It was really fun to be able to drive under the falls. The only down side is having to cross the road to get a good picture of the full falls.

Went to see Bridal veil falls because it was only a mile from Dry Falls, but after seeing Dry Falls this one was just okay!!! No hike as it is ride on the side of the road and you can actually drive under it!

On our recent motorcycle trip we chose to run the "Moonshiners28". Along this route is the Bridal Falls, seen from the highway, but with the added bonus of a little pull through that takes you DIRECTLY UNDER the falls....I dont care that it wasnt Niagara Falls coming down, it was more then your shower head and it was a waterfall....that...

Thought it was a waterfall. There may have been five gallons of water coming over the rock outface. Was a huge dissapointment. Not worth the drive over that horrible road to get there.

I thought this would be alot better in person, but was semi disappointed. There was barely any water coming down from it. Dry Falls is down the road and is soo much better to see.
