You Have to Stop Here
May 2021
With a rainy few days, the falls were great on the early May day when we stopped. There is a nice paved parking lot, restrooms (basic), a viewing walkway and stairs down to the falls. Note - if you have mobility issues, do not attempt the stairs, use the viewing walkway off the parking lot. We knew we would want to visit the falls, so we wore appropriate footwear. There are many stone stairs and they can be very slippery. This makes a great photo stop and a good place to cool off on a hot day. Just walk carefully behind the falls.

This is an excellent waterfall to see. There is a path behind the waterfall that you take and the water will be falling right in front of you

These falls were easily reached the hike was quite short and the photo ops were excellent.
Short drive from Highlands with some parking but could get crowded in peak periods

Dry falls was really cool. Very easy hike only a few stairs and a very short loop. We went after a heavy rain and it was powerful to walks behind it.

The most amazing falls
Mar 2021 • Family
We stopped here while on vacation in NC, and although we saw many other waterfalls this was definitely our favorite! The water was pouring over the falls. It was so amazing that you could stand behind them and enjoy their absolute splendor. These are a must see!

Lovely stop along the roadside with easy access. $3 fee to park, but was very enjoyable. A short walk down some stairs to the falls and a beautiful view from the top.

A little dangerous during the winter.......and dry is a misnome
Feb 2021
Dry Falls were second on our list. They were a little easier to visit due to a dedicated parking lot, which was quickly offset by ice on the trail to get to the falls. Obviously, this only applies if you go during the winter months. Make sure you have prudent footwear. The path to the falls is manmade and relatively kept up, but no one shows up to put salt on the steps when everything freezes. Dry Falls were cool in that you could actually walk behind the falls. During our visit, there was a fair amount of ice back there. I did manage to get a couple pics, but could only go so far before my sense of self-preservation kicked in. Recommended.

Beautiful waterfall

Enjoyed going here on our trip to Highlands. Cold walk with some icy patches but was worth it! We took some beautiful pictures and loved the long icicles hanging down from the rocks.

Really Nice Waterfall
Dec 2020 • Family
Very short walk from the parking lot, along a paved path with stairs. Very unique since you are able to walk under the waterfall.
