Bridal Veil Falls 7-27-07
7-27-07 - I had heard on the local news that the big chunk of rock that fell in December '03 was being cleared so I headed that way to check it out. Sure enough, it's gone! I spoke with a guy there that said a local company had donated it's services to clear the rock so folks could drive behind the falls once again. I've checked for any info online and all I can find is a letter to the editor thanking Bill Nellis, MidSouth Blasting, and Topline Grading. If anyone has any further info, please let me know.
Bridal Veil Falls is located in Macon County about 2.5 miles west of Highlands on Hwy 64 and is on a tributary of the Cullasaja River. There's a brown and white forest service sign just before the falls, which is on the right side of the road. If you want to drive under the waterfall, it will be just around a right hand bend and will sneak up on you. If you miss it, pull off after the waterfall in the wide area on the right and park or circle back around. If you are coming from Dry Falls west of Highlands on Hwy 64, it's about 0.8 miles past Dry Falls. Go past the waterfall and drive under the falls that way. There's no 'One Way' sign, but if you enter from the west and somebody else zips in from the other way... The next shot is from October 2006 when the rock was still there.
