Another great place for pictures. The only down side was having to park in a pull-out along the roadside

Out of the 3 waterfalls in the area (including Dry Falls and Bridal Veil), this one was flatter with less free fall. Nonetheless, if you're in the area, drive by and see it! It won't take you more than 10 minutes to stop here....and it is very beautiful!!

Great falls to pull over and look at. Bring good shoes and be prepared to get wet. Worth the trip. Take lots of pictures.

These falls are very pretty along hwy 64, but as others mention very hard to get to. When driving East you almost always miss the pull off. It is a very dangerous spot. We also missed it, went further and saw dry falls and bridal veil, then turned back around and stopped on the way back.

This falls can be seen from the roadside, but it is a treacherous spot. I would not recommend for children under 12, due to that the best "parking spot" to see the falls is located on the side of a curve on a busy road, teeming with semis. The term parking spot is not an adequate description, it's more like a pull-over. There are no signs to announce the pull-over, you just have to keep your eye peeled for it. Like the reviewer noted below, we drove past the pullover, turned around, and drove into it from the right lane (headed towards Highlands), as this was the safest way to get back out onto the road. Also, try to avoid typical rush hour times, for the traffic flow will be lighter between them.

That being said, this view of the falls is gorgeous! It had recently rained and the falls was running really well. I had never seen such a lengthy falls, and it was well worth the stop for us. Highly recommend, but stay on your guard for the traffic!
