Dry Falls

This waterfall flows on the Cullasaja River through the Nantahala National Forest. It is part of a series of waterfalls on an 8.7 mile stretch of the river that eventually ends with Cullasaja Falls. Dry Falls flows over an overhanging bluff which allows visitors to walk under the falls and remain relatively dry when the waterflow is low, hence its name. Visitors will get wet if the waterflow is high. Drive 3.25 miles on US 64 West to the parking area on left. A pleasant walk down stone steps leads to a path that goes behind the waterfall. Here the Cullasaja River projects over a cliff, allowing one to walk behind the falls without getting wet, hence the name. There is a $3.00 per car charge for parking.
