Blackwater Falls State Park is named for the falls of the Blackwater River whose amber-colored waters plunge five stories then twist and tumble through an eight-mile long gorge. The "black" water is a result of tannic acid from fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. The falls are one of the most photographed sites in West Virginia. Blackwater lodge, cabins and restaurant are open year-round and welcome visitors to enjoy winter sled riding, spring greening, cool summer evenings, and autumn foliage. Youll find good food, comfortable accommodations, and WiFi access if you must stay in touch while you're relaxing at Blackwater Falls. Our conference facilities host reunions, meetings and special occasions as well as catered banquets and receptions. The indoor guest pool and fitness center is popular with our guests. Tour buses are always impressed with the magnificent views found at the park in all seasons. There is ample parking and there are no entrance fees. The genuine hospitality you experience at Blackwater Falls is also found Canaan Valley area including the towns of Davis and Thomas, W.Va.

beautiful scenery . Trail is well kept and used ,but offered some challenges . The fire was magnificent. Wish that the trail spilt off to the rockface overlook was better marked and wish that cutoff was widened.... it's so tight I was waiting for a snake or a bear to jump out at me lol

A beautiful short hike to see the waterfall. A nice way to stretch our legs after the 3.5 hour drive to WV - enjoy the scenery, then go on one of the other trails for a longer hike

Very easy "hike" with great views of Blackwater Canyon valley.

Easy, short trail with breathtaking views at the point. Would be a fantastic hike in the fall once the leaves reach their peak colors. Definitely a great hike for a beginner but views that anyone will enjoy.
