Waterfalls in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Our list of waterfalls in the Blue Ridge Mountains is not intended to be exhaustive. Instead, we have included waterfalls that are fairly easy to visit. There are hundreds of additional waterfalls in the Blue Ridge Mountains that are not accessible on well-marked or maintained trails, and many that are miles away from civilization. Also, we have not had the opportunity to visit all of the waterfalls below, but instead compiled the list by researching a variety of hiking club websites and state and county travel bureaus. Please visit each link to be sure the falls are open to the public during your visit. Also, climbing on rocks above and around waterfalls can be extremely dangerous. Please use caution!

Bridal Veil Falls

in Waterfalls

Bridal Veil Falls is very convenient, right next to US Highway 64 about 2 1/2 miles north of Highlands, North Carolina. Visitors can drive underneath this falls on a paved driveway under the 50' waterfall (it's the only waterfall in North Carolina that you can drive your vehicle under). The falls is on a tributary of the Cullasaja River through the Nantahala National Forest. There is a parking area on the side of the road, where visitors can park and view the falls as well.
