Waterfall Byway

Not surprisingly, this Scenic Byway takes visitors through "the land of waterfalls," some of the most beautiful scenic sights in the mountains of North Carolina. Between Rosman and Murphy on US 64, travelers can visit many picturesque falls, including the spectacular 120-foot Bridal Veil Falls. Travelers who choose to stop at Dry Falls will discover the reason for its name-visitors can walk behind the falls without getting wet. The route passes through territory rich in Cherokee and early immigrant history.
