The Cullasaja rises in the Nantahala National Forest and drops over many falls and cascades before slowing down and entering the Little Tennessee. Three of the better-known falls are Bridal Veil, Dry Falls, and Cullasaja. The latter drops some 400 spectacular feet to a point about 0.5 miles above the put-in. US 64 follows alongside the river throughout most of this area. It is well worth a drive up through the gorge toward the resort village of Highlands.
