You can't miss it, when driving north of Highlands, NC. You can't drive behind it, but you can still walk there

We enjoyed the waterfalls on a cool summer day! They are fairly close to Highlands so see as many as you can. It is so pretty!

There was not enough water in the spring to make very much of a waterfall. It was easy to see and is nice when theres more rain in the area

I guess this place is really nice in the spring but if you go in the summer don't expect to see much, nothing like what you see on the pictures

When we visited there was barely any water going over as we have had a drought, although it was still beautiful.

On the road from Highlands to Franklin you will encounter two sets of falls, Dry Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. The better spot to stop is Dry Falls which is larger, more majestic, and far more interesting.

A local told us about this place but they were actually referring to Dry Falls which is further down the mountain. We got here expecting a huge waterfall and simply saw a trickle coming off the mountain and signs blocking access to behind the fall due to falling rock.

It's simply a stop along the road way between Highlands and Franklin, NC. You can see it as you drive by or stop and park for a closer view. Beautiful!

You used to be able to drive your car right behind the falls which is right beside the road but it was blocked off when we were there and there wasn't even much room to stop.
