Dry Falls, North Carolina


Dry Falls in March 2009

I get the sense that I wasn’t supposed to see Dry Falls when I visited the area in March 2009. Dry Falls is supposedly closed, or was closed until at least July 2009. I was going to pass by until I noticed that numerous other cars had stopped and were getting out to view the falls. No workers were there, so I don’t think we were interrupting anybody. I actually didn’t see any work going on at all.

Dry Falls is now open, so this is one waterfall that you should definitely go and visit. Actually, this stretch of US-64 has two very easy-to-visit waterfalls, Dry Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. Dry Falls is cool because you can walk behind the waterfall. You’re sure to get at least a little bit wet! Go check it out!


  1. The waterfall is accessible from US-64.
  2. If you are heading north on US-64, the parking area for the falls will be on your left. You will have passed Bridal Veil Falls on your way there.
  3. From the parking area, it’s pretty self-explanatory.

Accessibility: 8/10 (easy/moderate)
Height: 70′
Length of Hike: 0.1 miles round-trip (though there is a viewpoint that is handicapped accessible)

Where in the World is Dry Falls?

    • I wanted to visit this falls, but as I drove by it, there was no safe place to park (any spots had already been taken), and I decided to just keep going. When I visit the area again, I’ll have to try and see it again.
