Beautiful cascade and falls highly visible from US64 between Franklin and Highlands. The pullout is a little tight but if there are only a couple other cars there it's not bad. Remember you are on a major route so beware of some heavy traffic at...More

Beautiful waterfall and scenery. You have to exercise caution as cars drive around tight mountain curves and making quick pull-offs. Wouldn't take my kids back again. There are safer waterfalls that you can actually view closer.

Beautiful falls!! Well worth the stop. Get out and see it. I took video of it. Parking area is very small and right next to the road.

The falls were, beautiful but as others have said the pull off to park is small. There's two others you can park at fee yards up but the road is windy and probably unsafe to walk on. The pull off (2nd from this falls) has...More

If you enjoy the tranquil beauty of picturesque waterfalls, US Highway 64 between Highlands and Franklin has a “grand slam” of cascades sure to please. Best of all, each of the four falls has something to distinguish it from the others. Bridal Veil, Dry, and...More

This is a great waterfall to see from the road. Many people have been hurt climbing in and out of the gorge surrounding the falls - and some have even died. I have been to the bottom - trust me, the best views are from...More

This is a series of beautiful, spectacular waterfalls you can view and photograph easily from your car in the pull off parking spots on 64 north of Highlands, NC that don’t require any hiking. The falls were especially beautiful with the fall foliage.

This is and absolutely gorgeous sight any time of the year. The best view is heading east from Franklin. There is a tiny pull off to stop but don't stay too long so others may also stop.
