Have you ever had a dream, where you were in a make believe world, where anything was possible? It’s true that there are more waterfalls in western North Carolina than you could shake a stick at, but out of the literally hundreds of them, how many of them are over 180 feet tall and have a beautiful access path that allow you to walk right up and underneath the center of it – and beyond?
Dry Falls is one of the most popular locations in the Franklin area and within the last year, the access path was completely redone to allow for easier and safer descent from the parking area, under the falls, and over to the far side where there lies a bench and an area for families and friends to enjoy Mother Nature’s “rock concert”.
Dry Falls is located on Highway 64 between Franklin, NC and Highlands, NC and is accessible from either direction. With a newly paved parking area and picnic tables, the Dry Falls area is a location that the whole family can enjoy. Not wanting to walk the path, but you still want to enjoy the show? No problem! There is a long, parking lot level, viewing area that allows everyone to see the beauty and majesty that is Dry Falls.
