The village of Highlands, elevation 3,835 feet, sits at the heart of North Carolina's "Waterfall Country." Of the roughly three dozen cascades in the surrounding countryside, Dry Falls ranks as one of the most spectacular. The Cullasaja River spills over an out-jutting rock lip and drops 75 feet into a small, bouldery canyon, filling the air with mist and thunder. The falls are easily reached from a parking area along US 64/28 a few miles west of Highlands. A walkway leads visitors a short distance down into the canyon, then back behind the curtain of falling water.
