Visible from the highway, this 120-foot waterfall sometimes displays a rainbow in the afternoon light and has been known to freeze up during the winter.

Bridal Veil Falls is just outside Highlands along a very scenic portion of Hwy 64. It is worth a short stop to view and walk behind the waterfall, which cascades over a short, separate road that runs behind the water.

Great little waterfall. Can't miss it if you are driving from Highlands, NC to Franklin, NC down 64. Just pull off to the side of the road. You can get right out of the car. Only a few steps from the road. Don't miss Dry...More

this fall can be seen from the road or you can pull over and walk under it, no steps do go up or down, very easy to get to.

Ok a whim enroute to the dry falls we ran across this one. A welcome surprise when I needed to stoop and take a break from the winding road. Simple but yet well maintained. Nice photo area behind and across the street. Easy access

We were excited about "the waterfall you drive behind" but the road was blocked. Didn't matter. We were still able to pull over and park and go walk behind it and get some pictures. Very pretty in the sunset.

Our Dad has seen this Falls several times and he said this time was the strongest he's ever seen it. The road under was closed due to 'falling rock'. Beautiful Falls right off the road.

The water flow was fairly heavy the day we stopped and it was a fun place for photos and yet you have to be careful when pulling off and on the road. Right on the highway just outside Highlands. Fun for kids to see and...More

No effort at all to view this fall, but sure to be busy during the season. Accessible to everyone, great little roadside find.

This Falls is probably much better when there is higher water flow, but today flow was slow. There is a short road to drive behind the falls that was closed. No hiking required since the falls are right beside the road.
