Waterfalls in the Area

There are many waterfalls in Highlands, NC, for visitors to explore. A short drive to Dry Falls along Highway 64 can allow visitors to walk behind a beautiful 75-foot waterfall. Bridal Veil Falls, which is between Highlands and Dry Falls, offers North Carolina’s only drive behind waterfall. It’s truly a unique experience that can’t be found in many other places. Another favorite for locals and visitors alike is Silver Run Falls, which is a short walk from the highway and offers a great swimming hole to cool off in the southern summer heat. The kids will love visiting Bust Your Butt Falls. It has a great rock sliding area, nature’s own water slide and a swimming hole. For the more adventurous, there is a jump-off rock into the cool pool below.

What Makes the Waterfalls in Highlands NC Unique?

Highlands, NC, is located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, which means that the high elevation and mountain ranges offer many opportunities for unique waterfalls. One of the best things about the waterfalls in Highlands, NC, is that many of the favorites are easily accessible. Traveling on Highway 64, also called Mountain Waters Scenic Highway & Waterfall Byway, allows visitors to see the previously mentioned Dry Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, along with Cullasaja Falls which has a small pull-off and a brisk hike to a place where the falls can be viewed. Upper Whitewater Falls, the highest falls east of the Rockies, and Rainbow Falls, can also be seen on the Highway 64 drive.
