WATERFALLS

North Carolina is riddled full of gorgeous waterfalls, all of them worth seeing, I'm sure.

 

Bridal Veil Falls -- a small waterfall by the side of the road with some parking.

Bust Your Butt Falls -- a small waterfall on the road from Franklin to Highlands.

Cullasaja Falls and River Gorge -- beautiful drive west on Highway 64 from Highlands to Franklin, NC.  Take a lunch and enjoy the ride.

Dry Falls — easy access from paved parking lot.  You can walk behind this waterfall!

Glen Falls — has a moderate hike with elevation changes and tree roots to step over

Secret Falls — bumpy unpaved road and an easy 1/2 mile hike.  Extremely secluded.

Silver Run Falls -- between Highlands and Cashiers, has only 5 parking spots. Hike, swim, but no facilities.

Sliding Rock -- in the Pisgah Forest.  Go early and slide down this rock!  Entrance fee.

Whitewater Falls -- paved 1/4 mile trail to this very tall waterfall.  Has facilities. Entrance fee.
