This water fall is right on the road and not particularly spectacular. Parking is very limited so I'd go early in the day.

A group of motorcyclists blocked the drive and made it difficult to get in. Dry Falls is much better.

Bridal veil is a little "oh" moment along the road, but please travel on to Dry Falls right up the road for a more inspiring waterfall.

If you have travelers who are mobility impaired, this is the perfect waterfall! You don't even have to get out of your car. Located a few feet from the highway, it is but a brief detour to take advantage of the novelty of driving behind a waterfall. There is a small pull off if you want to get out of... More

You need to get out of your car to take special shots from a side angle. This was my best photo. From the front was just so so that day. It really does look like a bridal veil. It has a small area you can park to get out. Be careful for the busy road when standing there taking photos... More

Was able to park our motorcycles under the waterfall ledge and got some great pictures.. Very cool spot especially after a hard rain that day.

The old road once went under the falls. Now there is a turn off, but you can't miss it on the right leaving Highlands.

If you have travelers who have a hard time getting onto trails, this is a no-brainier . You literally can drive your car under it. (But please do not park there as someone in front of us did) . Park to the side so all can view. Lovely.

It really cascades over when it rains, however, it is a nice fall to visit anytime. Right off US 64, you can drive right behind the falls. A really neat visit.

This is a great little spot to stop and take a photo of your family driving under the waterfall. Kids and dogs can put their heads out the window as you take a photo - just watch out for on coming cars in the road. Wish there was a more protective area to take that shot - but still alot... More
