Bridal Veil Falls, Highlands

(2.4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Get an up-close look at a natural waterfall at Bridal Veil Falls, set just off of the highway in a national forest. Pay a visit to the 14 m (45 ft) tall waterfall by pulling into the roadway at its base, from where you can admire the cascade as it tumbles down the hills and rock faces above you. Take a unique journey by driving or walking underneath the falls themselves, as the roadway and visitor path curve behind the water and are partially protected by a recess in the rock. Keep in mind that though you can generally pass through and remain dry, the waterfall can still get you soaked if the stream is high.

  • 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 rig...  more »
