Bridal Veil Falls, North Carolina

Bridal Veil Falls near Highlands has been famous for generations as the only waterfall in North Carolina you can drive behind. However, the section of road behind the falls is now blocked off from automobiles for safety. This allows you to walk behind and enjoy it more. The 60-ft. waterfall in Nantahala National Forest doesn’t have a large volume of water (unless it’s right after a big rain), making it safe and fun to stand behind.
