Cullasaja Falls
Cullasaja Falls
Level of difficulty: N/A

Driving distance/directions from downtown Highlands, NC: About 9 miles. Follow Hwy. 64 (Franklin Road). Fall is on the left. Pull off is on the left.

Parking: Extremely limited

Description: This waterfall is visible from the road, but it is strongly advisable to pull off to view it. It is more easily accessible when traveling east on Hwy. 64 up the mountain towards Highlands. Several small pull-offs are available there.

Footnote: The area to view this fall is in an extremely narrow area of the Cullasaja Gorge Road. Use extreme caution and be aware of the traffic through the narrow pass.
