Bridal Veil Falls, Highlands

2.4
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Highlands
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 was a small waterfall. You can no longer drive under the falls but that is OK. It is smaller than expected, too.  more »
