This is a beautiful waterfall trail right along the side of the road. It's a short path to hike down from the road to the falls. The path then takes you around and directly behind the waterfall.

    It was a bitter cold 25 degrees and wet. Your hands stung from the cold wet air. This was an Awesome waterfall full of power!!! This waterfall was just like Niagara Falls. It was raining so I am sure that helped the amount of water coming over the edge. You were able to get very close. You were also able to walk behide the falls. ou will get wet so hide your camera.

    I found some more information about the falls in a NC website about it being closed and just reopened 10-12-12.....10-2-12 - Dry Falls has reopened after being closed all summer for improvements to the trail leading from the parking area to the waterfall. Other badly needed improvements were made a couple of years previous to this. The parking area was built up and is almost level with Hwy 64. There are now 25 parking spots - 4 are handicap parking only. There are also his and hers pit toilets in a small building, but no sink or running water to wash your hands. I think the biggest improvement was a wheelchair accessible viewing area was added. The photo above is from that area. It's also perfect for anyone who is just not able to make it down the stairs for a closer view of the falls. This waterfall is kid friendly,

    Awesome trail. This is one of the best waterfalls I've seen in the southeast. The path takes you right behind the waterfall and you can feel the water spray off it. There's even an alcove on the trail you can hide in from the water. It's an easy, fun, hike.
