Trying to help my brother find a spot to propose in Highlands/Cashiers/Glenville. He needs a scenic spot, overlook or waterfall would be nice. But also wants somewhere secluded, so there’s not a ton of people around. Proximity to the road is important as well; he can’t hike in because she’s going to be dressed up and thinks they’re going to dinner.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Check out this website. Normally I would suggest Dry Falls but its popular and they may encounter other people. Also you can walk behind the falls, its a beautiful spot. However there are a number of stairs to walk down to the waterfall. There is a viewing platform at the top but it wouldn't be as nice as being right at the falls.

Sorry, here is the link for Dry falls and other spots that might work for them.

Any waterfall next to a highway will have a ton of people. Check out the Big View Overlook (Shadow of the Bear Overlook) on highway 64 between Cashiers and Highlands. The only time it will have very many people there is just before and during the time the bear is visible, approximately between 5:30 to 6:15 PM from mid-October through early November.
