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.

Loved that you could drive behind these falls. When we visited the path was closed but we enjoyed getting out and looking up at the falls. Great place to take elderly grandparents or the kids if you don't want to hike.

Located right on the road - beware of traffic. Beautiful falls, and with the exception of winter, you are able to drive behind Bridal Veil Falls. Truly worth the time to visit. Great photo opportunity.

We visited Bridal Veil this time after a snow and enjoyed observing the long ice sickles, and snow plowed snow mounds. Our guest who was seeing it for the first time seemed to really enjoy it, too.

Drive behind, park in the small parking area either way this waterfall is beautiful. We visited a day or two after it snowed so the ground was slippery, so watch your step if you get out of your car. Watch out for cars driving by on Hwy 64 as they drive by as this waterfall is road side.

This is just off Hwy. 64 near Highlands, NC. What makes this nice is for those that may not be able to get out and walk around. The old highway actually used to run behind the falls, which you can still do today. However, use EXTREME CAUTION in winter months as this is solid ice underneath. It can even be... More

Can't miss this waterfall if you're travelling from Franklin to Highlands on US 64/28. Best time to view it is after a good rain in the spring. During a summer drought it's barely a trickle. Can be crowded during peak tourist seasons. No facilities here but a short drive to Dry Falls heading back south on 64/28 there are toilets

This is not a hike to a waterfall, great for little kids and photo opps in front of the falls. It's an easy drive and worth seeing but no hiking here. Plenty of other opportunities in the area to visit though.

We spent a morning hiking and visiting waterfalls with our children this one has easy access and a small section to pull behind the waterfall, it was fantastic, we took a few pics and continued on to dry falls, definitely worth stopping for.
