There's a good place to pull off and park but at the time you no longer can drive under the waterfall.

It is located right on the main road so you can determine immediately if it is worth stopping to see. The day we were there it was just a trickle and we didn't even stop. Dry falls is only a short distance away and even though it is a short walk, it is definitely worth it.

The 60-foot falls are near Highlands along US Highway 64. The small one lane road used to be open to drive behind the falls, but the road was closed when we were there. Walk behind only. Not a large volume of water as it trickles over the edge. Just down the road are the Dry Falls, which are much more... More

Though the roadway beneath the falls was closed, that did not stop some, who drove around the barricades for a photo-op. The falls are lovely, and right beside the road. Well worth the time to park and see - though do observe those barricades!

The falls are right off the road. Just pull off and you can walk around the falls and even behind them.

It's amazing to drive your car right under the falls but it was closed when I went. Still worth the time and it is very accessible which some of the waterfalls are not.

I'm sure I would have given it a better rating if there had been much water but it was just a small stream and you could not drive under it. My suggestion would be to look at it as you drive by on your way to Dry Falls for a real water fall. You will see it on the side... More

Beautiful area. Nice hiking trails. Well maintained area. Paths down to falls lead to Walkway behind the falls - fascinating. Gorgeous Rock formations and intriguing waterfall. A fun place to visit. Thoroughly enjoy day trip.
