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.
