The path to Dry Falls is a walk with a handrail along well constructed wooden stairs and rocks. I wouldn’t consider it a hike. Dry Falls is a wonderful spot for first time visitors to the area though I often return every year for the beautiful scenery and sounds of rushing waters, especially in the springtime when the water falling is heaviest. Kids of all ages enjoy walking into the mist behind Dry Falls which hopefully you figured out is not dry.

Super cool waterfall near Highlands, NC. I've been here twice. Once, in November, the walkway behind the falls was closed. Earlier this spring, in May, the walkway was open. Totally worth getting splashed!
