Blackwater Falls State Park's name comes from the falls of the Blackwater River whose waters plunge five stories before winding their way through an eight-mile long gorge.Tannic acid from fallen hemlock and red spruce needles causes the "black" water that make these falls one of the most photographed natural places in West Virginia. Sledding, hiking, cross country skiing, and great views form the viewing platforms will make this one of your favorite places. Visitors can enjoy spectacular views and beautiful waterfalls from the hiking trails or have a more luxurious visit with time at the Blackwater lodge, where cabins and a restaurant with good food are open year-round and offer wifi. The conference facilities house meetings and special occasions. The indoor pool, game room, and fitness center are also open year round.

Autumn colors are on full display right now and looking lovely as ever. This was a very easy walk in the woods, mostly stairs.

Beautiful day for a hike in Davis, WV. Parked at Blackwater Lodge and found many trails. Stop in the lodge first and ask for a trails map. Hiked app. 6 miles and I had the three trails I was on all to myself. Falls were running low due to the lack of rain lately. I am staying at Black Bear Lodge just South of Davis, very nice.

Nice view.

More forest than anything. Low falls however only to split before balance rock was completed.

Great view. As noted it can be rocky and narrow path with the blazes marked clearly.
