Fallingwater Trail is a 1.4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Bedford, Virginia that features a waterfall. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Great short trail for the kids! Water, rocks, up and down the mountain side. It's pretty and fun even with your dog like I did. This was a great end to my hiking day after Sharp Top.
A pretty wooded trail with some nice views of the surrounding mountains. It is a little rocky in a few places, but nothing difficult...and there is just enough elevation change to make the short hike more fun. There are two parking areas along the Parkway. I started from the spot that also includes the Flat Top Mountain trailhead. I would recommend taking the loop clockwise for better views of the falls while hiking back up along the creek.

Amazing day and beautiful trail.
Thickly wooded trail...falls at the mid point are nice and easy....not spectacular, but good enough :)
Beautiful, I went with my 5 year old godson and he was just fine, the way back up is a bit strenuous (for a kid) but the falls are amazing
Go after the rain, waterfall was great today
I'm not trying to beat this little park up but it just wasn't much to look at.
Checking out Falls is my thing, short hike, enjoy the falls, turn out to be better then I expected, worth the hike
The Fallingwater Cascades Trail is located at MP 83.1 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's relatively short (almost 2 miles) with moderate inclines, and worth the effort. The trail is well maintained, mostly wooded, and slightly rocky. The closest bathrooms are located at the Peaks of Otter Visitor Center (MP 86).
This is a nice trail! We really enjoyed it. There a few spots you can safely get close to the water! You hike down first, then back up, it's obviously steep on the way back, but a great hike.
