Bridle Veil Falls
Once you’re done exploring the Ranger Falls Trail, head back down on the main Hwy 64 and head north for a few more twists and bends further on upwards, you will come across Bridle Veil Falls, on the left hand side. For many years this was the only waterfall in NC that you could drive/ride behind.
We were able to do that the first couple of times we stopped on by but we’ve been twice this year and it has been blocked up both times; you can still walk behind the Falls, but automobiles are no longer allowed ~ apparently this makes it safer and more “enjoyable”, hmpf!
From back before Health & Safety took over and you could still drive/ride behind the Falls
If you have already enjoyed the majestic “Cullasaja Falls”, the fun “Bust Your Butt Falls” and hiked to the scenic “Ranger Falls” then just keep on heading north along Hwy 64 and you will soon come across “Dry Falls” on the right hand side. Here you can pull in, park and take a short walk to another, more spectacular Falls, that you can walk behind. After this, there is one more beautiful waterfall, “Sequoyah Lake Dam Falls”, to see before you reach the town of Highlands where you can stop off for some well deserved refreshment before taking a short ride to “Glenn Falls”, the last on this stretch of spectacularly scenic road.
Highlands is a lovely town where you will find many places to step in and refresh yourself and some cute stores line each side of the towns central street if you wanted to take your time to browse. As a starting point, I can recommend Bucks Coffee Cafe, if you’re looking for just a coffee and a light snack, or if you are starting out early with breakfast in mind. Great coffee! If you’re looking for more of a lunch or dinner, then we always enjoy the food, atmosphere and service at the Main Street Inn, on a warm day it’s lovely to sit out on the patio and watch the world go by as you linger over a deliscious meal. We’ve never been disappointed yet!
