Do not miss walking under this waterfall! Excellent view of the falls from a newly constructed platform or walk to the bottom (about 500 feet)

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Dry Falls is just lots of fun for everyone. The hike down to the falls is easy for most folks and when you get down, the walk behind the falls is quite a neat experience! Kids just love it and I do too! There is also a viewing platform just off the parking lot so if you're not up for the walk, you can get a look from the top. Great parking and restrooms.

“Great Natural Site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Somewhat spoiled by the parking lot, wooden walkway and crowd, but... easy to get to and explosive water volume. Best part, you can walk behind the falls.

“Powerful natural resource”

Should be one of the 7 natural wonders. It is called dry Falls but I got a little wet. Lots of water this year.

“Fun little stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

On the incredible drive through the mountains the is a fun stop to see a beautiful waterfall. It's probably about 50 steps down but at the bottom you get to walk behind it. It is quite a beautiful sight and I would recommend it to just about anybody.
