Dry Falls flows on the Cullasaja River through the Nantahala National Forest. It is part of a series of waterfalls on a 8.7-mile (14 km) stretch of the river that eventually ends with Cullasaja Falls. Dry Falls flows over an overhanging bluff that allows visitors to walk up under the falls and remain relatively dry when the waterflow is low, hence its name. Visitors will get wet if the waterflow is high. The falls has been called Dry Falls for a long time, but has also gone by a few other names, including High Falls, Pitcher Falls, and Cullasaja Falls.
From Cashiers, take Highway 64 East. You will also come to Bridal Veil Falls and can pull over to experience it along the way. A brown and white forest service sign for Dry Falls marks the point and you'll turn right into the parking area.
From Franklin, Dry Falls is about 5.5 miles past Cullasaja Falls. There's a Forest Service sign coming from this way also. Both waterfalls are on the Cullasaja River.
