Fodor's Review

West of Highlands via US Hwy. 64 toward Franklin, the Cullasaja Gorge (Cul-lah-SAY-jah) is a 7 1/2-mi gorge passing the Cullasaja River, Lake Sequoyah, and several waterfalls, including Bridal Veil Falls, Dry Falls, Quarry Falls, and the 200-foot Cullasaja Falls. The gorge and falls are in the Nantahala National Forest. Rocks around waterfalls are slippery, and it is dangerous to try to cross the top of the falls.
