We took a tour of the various falls that are close to Highlands, NC. This particular fall is literally roadside; there's a small area to stop and park, walk around and take photos. Unfortunately, there wasn't much water flow that day, but after a good rainstorm I imagine this fall could be pretty dramatic.

This was once an awesome, although not huge, waterfall that you could drive behind! We have done it several times and loved it. A couple of weeks ago, earlier in August, we were in the area again. Immediately, we saw that the road behind the falls is closed and driving behind is prohibited. In summer, the volume of water is... More

You can drive right past this waterfall there are so many incredible waterfalls in the Highlands North Carolina area that this one is really nothing very special other than easy to see from your car

This is a water fall that you can park in your car and look at. It is nothing compared to the other water falls in the area.

The falls road was closed when we rode pasted. The road is just a pull off. The water was just a dripple the day we passed.

Dry Falls is much better, just a little further down the road, and well worth seeing. Be careful on the trail if its wet.
