These falls were very nice, but I wish they weren’t “railed” off so you can’t get down to the creek... read more

These falls were very nice, but I wish they weren’t “railed” off so you can’t get down to the creek to hike around a bit. It’s just walk down - look - walk back up. We prefer the option of hiking around a bit in...More

Probably of more interest to out tourists traveling through the state than to local mountaineers. Plan on spending an hour to walk the full course and take in the views. For me it was o.k., but not something I'd bother seeing again.

Beautiful place! Definitely worth the walk to see the falls. The trail is easy to walk on and the photo ops are numerous. Loved seeing this scenic jewel of West Virginia.

This is a series of three waterfalls, the first being handicapped accessible, I believe this waterfall drops about 20 feet or more and is beautiful in itself. To view the next two falls, you must be in reasonably good physical condition as there are many...More

The correct GPS coordinates are N 38*10.678' and W 080*20.311'. We walked to all three falls and took the shortcut on the way back. It is great that these events in West Virginia are free.
