Following paved walkways from the parking area, you can walk directly underneath the tumbling 75-foot waterfall.

Awsome! Even though there has been low rain fall in the area, the view was still spectacular to say none the least. We can only imaginewhat the falls would look like with average or even above average rain fall. Great pictures and experience

Beautiful view and fairly easy to get to. A short drive and a nice walk gets you to it. The weather was perfect and leaves were gorgeous. Of course being October in the mountains it was crowded as were the roads but to be expected...More

This is a must-see waterfall where there's a paved sidewalk without a lot of steps that you can walk behind. This can be busy with limited parking but worth the short hike.

limited parking, but definitely worth the short, easy hike. There is also an overlook for people who can not walk down to the falls.

We enjoyed the "hike" to see Dry Falls recently in Highlands, N.C. The walk down to the waterfall is paved and very safe. It was very beautiful to walk behind the waterfall! This is a must-do while visiting this area!

Went on a short hike here. The falls were beautiful, however, since there is a drought, they were kind of dried up. It's quite a walk down to the falls, so be prepared.

net to visit, recent upgrades are awesome, but parking is challenge. Lower part of path to waterfall slippery.

Easy walk down to some beautiful falls that you can walk behind. We were there after a severe drought and there was still an impressive amount of water. Can't wait to go back when there is NOT a drought!!!

I don't know why this is called Dry Falls because it was just the opposite , it is so beautiful and breathtaking I couldn't believe my eyes. You park in a parking lot and they have a very nice walk way down to the falls...More

Not the steps down as this is mountainous terrain. But, all the pictures I posted were taken from the main walkway.
