The Cullasaja Gorge is one of God’s masterpieces; it would be difficult to find a more rugged river gorge anywhere in the Blue Ridge. The Cullasaja River runs parallel to US 64 between Highlands and Franklin. Considered one of the most beautiful routes in western North Carolina, this stretch of highway, a National Forest Scenic Byway, was carved into the side of a cliff.

This is also a road trip that you can see 5 falls from the road. Really nice road trip for handicap or someone who doesn't want to get out walk or doesn't want to hike. There are 4 waterfalls total on this trip it is also on a beautiful scenic drive I have accidently named two of the water falls. One tall one with wide base is looking glass and the wide and short one is Bust your Butt Falls it even has a rope for swinging into the water at lower levels
