This stunning drive from Highlands to Franklin on Rt 64 is not to be missed! We've driven all over the country and the closest we've come to an area this gorgeous is driving South on Rt 191 from I-90 towards Big Sky, Montana. That gives you some idea how rare a treat the gorge is. And I actually think the Cullasaja River Gorge is even more beautiful. A twisty road, sheer rock cliffs, several significant water falls, rushing rapids, deep gorge views...what more would you want? If in Highlands - drive slowly West on 64 and plan for a fun lunch in charming Franklin. If you're staying near Franklin, drive East on 64 and spend the afternoon in quaint Highlands. BTW - if a speedy driver comes up behind you and is pushing you to go faster - when you obviously want to go slowly and enjoy the scenery - just briefly pull off in one of the many turn-outs and let that hurry-person past. Then return to (safely) rubber necking all the nature around you!

One of the most beautiful sights in the United States! There are places that you can walk down to the water. Take advantage but be careful!

We went Friday after lunch and found the last spot on the side of the road to park our truck. It was beautiful! Would have been less stressful (traffic/lots of people trying to take pics) during an off time. Perhaps mid morning would have been better. Very pretty though! Be careful of the winding road.

There are several place to pull off the road to view the water. We saw several picnics going on and others just exploring. Do stay safe and obey all rules.
