Such a beautiful natural attraction. Definitely bring your camera if you're a shutterbug or just sit and ponder the magnificence of this natural wonder!

“Well worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014

Was in Cherokee and was only about a hour drive to Dry Falls well worth the drive. The access to the falls is really easy some stairs and very short distance. They even have a handicap area were you can view the falls. Bathrooms in the parking area.

“Very scenic waterfall, easy to access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

First, it's easy to get to off Hwy 64 out of Highlands. Second it has a easy to access new parking lot with lots of spaces. Third it has easy-to-navigate steps to a big/high scenic waterfall that you can actually walk behind. Plus you can take pics of it from right and left hand side and from behind it. Easy very scenic waterfall - how can you beat it?

“Definitely not!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

This is one of the nicer falls we saw in the area. Be sure to get a map of the various falls, otherwise you won't find them.
