I espouse this falls Nov 28, 2014
A petite falls, but a real eye catcher as you steer west from Highlands, NC. The falls sits just off of 64W about two miles outside of town and there is no way you can miss it. The falls sits on the right side of the road and the curvy mountain pathway ensures you won’t speed past --- quite convenient to pull off and get up close and personal.

The turnout could easily accommodate twenty vehicles, so plenty of room to park (but no facilities). Research of the falls claimed it had been the sole spillway in North Carolina you could drive behind until 2003, when a boulder fell onto the pathway. I can report that as of late 2014, there was a macadam road winding behind with NO boulder, but suspiciously, I did not see anyone attempt it. It looked okay to me, so the drive-behind might be a restored option.

Flow wasn’t strong at this time of year, but a delightfully scenic drop of water over a rock ledge. The landscape was enhanced by fringes of ice around the landing spot and I was thankful. In this case all that glittered was cold, but not chilly enough to require bundling up and feeling rushed to return to warmth.
