This 90-ft. waterfall is located in the foothills amid 268 acres of virgin forest and spring-fed streams. A moderate 1/4-mile trail leads to the waterfall – make time to enjoy the cool, misty glen. On the way up to the falls, observe more than 200 species of fern, flowering plants, algae and moss in the wildflower preserve. Sit on a bench and feel the peacefulness of this natural sanctuary as you listen to the water and the birds.
Discover the East’s king of Waterfalls after a half-mile paved walkway and watch it cascade over massive rock pillars and drop 411 feet to the river below. This sight was just magnificent from the top of the trail overlook,
From a lower overlook located at the bottom of 154 wooden steps (total 308 steps) but worth the view. One can rest on bench along the way. It’s worth every effort, even with a tripod and heavy camera and lenses.
Whitewater Falls on the Whitewater River is the last river in the Jocassee Gorge area just before you reach South Carolina. Some sources say it’s the highest falls east of the Mississippi river.

Dry Falls was impressive. After quite a bit of rain the Cullasaja River was roaring over this waterfall. Dry Falls is another one that can be seen from the highway. Parking is available. This shot was taken from a boardwalk viewing platform one step down the parking lot.
This shot requires walking down a trail (staircase), not too strenuous however, which leads you to behind the waterfalls, and depending on the strength of the water, you may get wet, but not too much. In warmer temperature, the mist can be welcome.

Boarded trail behind the waterfalls to prevent accident.
The next waterfalls as you enter the Cullasaja River Gorge is off the highway. Recommended to park your car and with lots of caution (very dangerous at this section) to cross the street to have a complete view of the falls.
Best to see during the Spring when there is plenty of water.
There is enough room behind the waterfalls to drive a car behind it.
The bottom of the waterfalls.
Right off US Highway 64 of the Smokies, this is one of the first waterfalls you see without having to leave your car.
This falls cascades more than 30 feet into a large pool to create this unique landform. Located in the Granville Reservation which encompasses the forests and waters along both sides of Vermont Scenic Route 100 Byway for six miles. This unique habitat is also well known for its richness in wildlife where white-tailed deer, moose, black bear etc… call this area home.
Panoramic view of the waterfall from the Quechee covered bridge. A splendid site to view and especially on a bright cool sunny day. The blue sky reflection adds to its beauty.
