This water fall was a powerful display of nature’s power. Easy walk down and totally worth navigating the tiny parking lot.

While in Western North Carolina I saw several waterfalls and this one was clearly the most impressive and if you are coming from Highlands, NC you will get to see Bridal Veil falls as well since they are on the way to Dry Falls

If you are going to be in Highlands anyway, the short drive to Dry Falls from Highlands is well worth it. The walkway setup at the Falls provides views of the falls from above, below and even behind! Recommend: during the leaf-viewing season in the Fall, GO EARLY. Road traffic can be heavy, and the Dry Falls parking lot is small. Be ready to pay the $3 (or so) parking fee in cash. Flatlanders: the roads to Highlands are winding, hilly, somewhat narrow and sometimes shoulderless 2-lane paved highways. Be ready to test your mountain driving skills, and be warned that locals drive a good bit faster than visitors.

Nicely laid out. Worth the short walk. Beautiful area. A must do! Even a viewing area for those who cannot walk far. Get behind the falls for full affect!

This was an easy and fun hike. Great picture opportunity behind falls. Lots of water cascading over you, but you still remain mostly dry.
