There are 16 scenic waterfalls in Southwestern North Carolina, including areas of the Nantahala National Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

  • We recommend taking a scenic drive from Buttercup Haven to Highlands via US Highway 64E. There are three falls along the way – Bridal Veil Falls, Dry Falls, and Cullasaja Falls, and then Glen Falls which is just the other side of Highlands. Stop for lunch in Highlands and browse the shops while you are there.  Click here for directions.
  • Whitewater Falls – we created a separate post to feature Whitewater Falls which, at 411 ft., is the highest falls in Eastern America.
