A waterfall is usually an awesome experience within itself, but one you can walk behind is a truly amazing one. To listen to it from that point is a totally different experience all together. It is so peaceful and serene, if I could have bottled up that feeling, it would have been better than any anti-depressant on the market. There were people out and about, but it wasn’t overly crowded. The walk to the falls is short and moderate and the bridge going behind the falls is very sturdy. It says you can walk behind them and not get wet, but if you get up really close and wear glasses, you will see a slight overspray. It’s nothing to worry about at all. It is totally worth it. Dry Falls is part of the Cullasaja Gorge group of falls to see off NC 64 at the Highlands. We had other falls on the list that day, but if I had the time, I could’ve just sat back in the cave recess there behind the falls and watch for quite a while as the wall of water fell before me, and closed my eyes and listened, and breathed in the fresh water smell. It is definitely a site to visit and a trip worth taking if you have not been.
