“Love driving by these falls.”
Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

As this is a drive-by falls, It's easy to find . What's so cool about it is its so cool. Literally.....it was 104 outside but SO cool under the falls.

You can also drive under them, at least today because there is a drought. Not much water flowing.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

A little trickle you can drive under - kind of like a rocky car wash with no soap. With so many good falls in the area, life's too short to waste your time here.

“Roadside Beautiful Waterfall”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

You don't even have to leave your car to see this fall, but it pales in comparison to those you have to work a bit for.

“Short drive from Highlands”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

When have you ever been able to drive or even walk under a waterfall? You can at Bridal Veil. Just a short drive up the Franklin Road (Hwy 64 West) out of Highlands and you will see a beautiful waterfall right next to the highway, but there is also a short, blacktopped area that you can use to drive underneath the falls. And there are always plenty of people willing to take your photo in exchange for taking theirs.
