“Not that impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is literally a loop off the road. You drive behind a small waterfall. There is really not much to it. If you have kids they would probably love it.

“Majestic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We traveled from Highlands on 64 and came upon this waterfall. I've seen prettier falls and more majestic ones but this is one of those few that you could actually go behind or drive behind. We got a few pictures but not many as there were some camera hogs already there.

“Always a beauty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a spectacular water fall and I have visited several times since the early 1990s. A nice, but a bit steep, walking trail and the water sprays mist on you during the walk. Lovely in summer, cold in winter.

“Pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is easy to see, and an easy trip that you can't miss. I drove from Franklin to Highlands for dinner and saw it for the first time one night. I had to go back in the day time though to get good pictures. I also climbed up Bridal Veil Falls, from a different perspective, and I'm still trying to figure out where the connection is between the two falls is.....

“Beautiful Bridal Veil Falls - Highland NC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I love this place, they have enough parking there for 6-7 cars at a time and best of all if you dont want to stop by you can have your car go behind the falls. However I would suggest park there and enjoy the falls atleast for few minute. I visited there twice (Last December and this October), December seemed the flow of fall was much larger than this October.

Lovely place!
