Quarry Falls - Near Highlands, NC

Quarry Falls

Driving highway US64 between Franklin and Highlands, NC is a great place to see waterfalls.

As you drive the winding road up the mountain, you will first past the most impressive and least visible (and nowhere to stop and park) Cullasaja Falls. Next on the drive, you will pass this one, which is the smallest and most overlooked, but there is a small pulloff from the highway. As you continue on, you'll see Dry Falls and then Bridal Veil Falls.

This is a popular but still the least impressive because it is the smallest, as it isn't one big plunge but a series of cascades totalling 20 feet. This is the Cullasaja River in the Cullasaja Gorge in the Nantahala National Forest. It's alternative names include Upper Cullasaja Falls and Bust-Your-Butt Falls.
