View from the road. Near Nantahala Gorge.
From Nantahala Outdoor Center, go 7.5 miles south on US 19/74, turn left on Wayah Road (SR 1310), and continue driving through Nantahala Gorge along the river. At 4.1 miles, turn right on Old River Road (FR 308). Drive less than 0.1 mile to the bridge over Whiteoak Creek and look upstream to see the falls. The view from the bridge is fair.
