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.

Water over the Rocks

Today the Reedy River is primarily recognized for its beautiful and scenic shoal and waterfall at Falls Park in Greenville, South Carolina. However, the Reedy River is much more than just a scenic downtown attraction. It is an important riparian system that stretches from the mountains all the way to Lake Greenwood.

Falls Park on the Reedy

Falls Park on the Reedy is a 32-acre park adjacent to downtown Greenville, South Carolina in the historic West End district. Considered the birthplace of Greenville, the park was founded in 1967 when the Carolina Foothills Garden Club reclaimed 26 acres of land that had been previously used by textile mills. It is a blend of nature and modern buildings with a suspension bridge to walk over the waterfalls.
