The most popular waterfall in the region, Dry Falls offers a brand-new visitors’ center, featuring a handicapped-accessible viewing platform, an upgraded trail, odoriferous toilets and free entry.You may be wondering why the name of this 75-foot waterfall sounds like an oxymoron. The moniker Dry Falls comes from a common game among visitors that involves stepping behind the cascade and staying dry—a near impossible feat during wetter seasons. In the past, the waterfall has gone by the names High Falls, Pitcher Falls, and Cullasaja Falls, after the river that feeds it.
