Dry Falls reopens after extensive rehab

Written by 

out dryfallsThe U.S. Forest Service reopened Dry Falls in the Nantahala National Forest Saturday, Sept. 22. The site has been closed since April for repairs. Significant improvements were made this year to the historic and scenic Dry Falls Trail.

The $466,000 project stabilized the trail, reconstructed and replaced the entire walking path, and removed tripping hazards. The project also protects water quality through drainage control measures. The improvements enhance the visual appeal of the trail and make it easier to maintain. Dry Falls is located northwest of the town in Highlands off of N.C. 28.
