This is one of many picturesque falls along the Cullasaja River gorge, but unfortunately seeing them can be risky and downright dangerous – not only from falling over the falls, but from the traffic rushing by behind you on the narrow road. Route 64 is narrow, often without a berm, and there are very few pull-offs along the windy stretch beside the rushing, scenic river. A visit early in the morning when traffic may be lighter improves your chances of finding a spot to pull off for a few minutes and gaze at the churning water. There are a few places where undeveloped, rocky paths lead closer to the water, but it would be easy to slip and fall – especially if the ground and rocks are wet. Be warned.

Pull off the side of the road in a wide spot and look around to see if you are in the right spot. After you find the spot crawl over the rail and down the hill to get a good vie.

We have viewed these falls from the road before, but finally stopped to enjoy them today. They were impressive! The grandkids definitely liked them. There was a way down to get closer. Go under the guardrail, grab the rope for balance and work your way down to the river. I shyed away at first, but decided I would be wild like the falls and go for it. Just think, I could have missed that awesome experience with 2 of my grandchildren, daughter, son-in-law, and husband! Excellent view of the falls.

We were staying at an AirBNB just outside of Franklin and decided to visit as many waterfalls as was reasonable. US 64 is a curvy, narrow road, with few places to pull over. Add in the ice/rock falling from the sheer rock faces along the road, and you have a little entertainment. Cullasaja falls were the first on the list, and we did have a little difficulty navigating using Waze. Supposedly there was a trailhead for a short trail to the falls. We never saw any trailhead and, given the weather conditions, it may not have been a good idea anyway. We managed to find a short section where we could pull over and get a pic. There was plenty of ice to put someone on their behind, so be careful if you visit during the winter months. The falls were quite photogenic. Recommended.

It would be nice if there was access to a better View of the falls and a walking trial to access the falls. The view point only has parking for 3 cars and very dangerous to park. Narrow 2 way winding roads with large trucks passing.

A beautiful waterfall. The only issue is because of the terrain of the area, there is very, very little parking. It is a two-lane narrow mountain road and you have to be very careful. Still...a must see..

This is the best natural attraction in North Carolina. There are several waterfalls along a short drive.

We stopped here to view the Cullasaja Falls and it was simply breathtaking. The pull off can be dangerous and there’s only room for maybe 4 cars at the most. We were lucky enough to get a spot to view this beauty. Be very careful parking and getting out of car, it’s a VERY narrow space, but still worth the effort.

One of the prettiest waterfalls I know. I love to make the 64East drive and stop here, Dry Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and then on to Cashiers for Whitewater Falls - a great day trip!

Enjoyed all the falls along highway 64. It’s a beautiful drive but it’s a very curvy road. If that bothers you, you won’t enjoy it. The road is two lanes but narrow.
