“Anything but "dry"!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

An easy trip down for a spectacular view. This has the highest "beauty of view" to "ease of access" ratio of any of the falls in the area. While you can easily
Drive under Bridal Veil Falls they pale in comparison to the huge amounts of water at Dry Falls. Once you park you are literally a 2-minute walk to a spectacular view!

“An easy walk down the stairs for a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Being able to walk under the falls is a lot of fun. Great photo op, beautiful view of the falls and of the river rushing away.

“Easy to get to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

A very short hike and easy to get to while driving. I would definitely recommend making a stop here. Easy hike for all ages. Beautiful waterfall and scenery. Bathrooms on site (no place to wash your hands so bring wet naps).

“Who wouldn't want to walk behind a waterfall?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Very easy to access, a short hike down some stairs with a railing and you are able to walk behind a very large waterfall. I would def. recommend stopping. I would also recommend going early in the morning as the small parking lot (no fee) fills up very quickly and there is no where else to park on the narrow and windy road.
