You will go see this because it is literally on the side of the road right by Dry Falls. We were here August 1. It had hardly any water so was not interesting. However in it had a lot of water it would only be cool because you can drive your car behind it.

Fun free moments drive under the falls and take a photo. The road winds to Highlands and these falls are on the side of the road, no steps to climb, kid friendly experience. Take a moment to take your turn to drive under the falls, I do it every time I go by there.

This is a pretty waterfall, but it is a very popular tourist attraction, so you need to get there early to get good pictures. Neat that you can walk or drive under the falls!

I have been by these falls 6 times in the last 5 years, only once was it worth a photo. 90% of the time these falls are just a small stream. I've only seen a waterfall worth photographing immediately after a moderate rain. So if you specifically want a photo of your car under a waterfall, drive there after a... More

Although the falls is much better after a rain the ability to walk behind a waterfall makes this worthy of a stop no matter the weather.

Nice drive by falls. Be careful taking pictures...some people were in the road! Can drive under and behind. Not spectacular, but worth seeing.

I think this is one of a kind. How many waterfalls do you know that you can drive under? Not many, I'd say. This must the the gem of the Blue Ridge mountains. Take a drive down. You dont want to miss this one.

This is worth a stop if you are headed to Highlands, NC. We stopped here while on a motorcycle ride and had a terrific time just watching the other people checking out the falls. We walked down behind the falls and then took a view from the overlook. What a view it was. The parking is fairly large and it... More
