Great!

We went around 6pm after it bad been raining on and off all day and had a fantastic viewing. We had the falls to ourselves! Even the road from Fayetteville to the falls was gorgeous! I wouldn't consider this a trail just nature's beauty on the side of the road. But grateful it was on the app!

Crowded but cool tall falls. Also found several other roadside side creek falls on the drive from Fayetteville to cathedral fall.

Not sure that I would consider this a trail but the waterfall is pretty. You park your car on the side of the road which you can see the waterfall from. If you choose, you can walk the extremely short path over to the falls for a closer look.

Gorgeous waterfall just on the side of the road! Only a very short several hundred foot trail up to the waterfall off of the parking lot.

not necessarily a trail. you pull in and relax next to a great waterfall. definitely great for the disabled or those wanting to appreciate nature without using a lot of effort.

Absolutely a beautiful Waterfall! We visited in October after spending a long weekend in Huntington for the Fall Colors Express Train Trip through the New River Gorge. It was worth the trip and you pretty much park just a few steps away. I would have given it five stars, but the parking was very tight and the trash was overflowing and scattered.

I have enjoyed this waterfall many times. It is currently raging. Very exciting to watch. From this spot, you can travel a very short distance and visit many other great places. The strip club exposure isn’t very far! Or you can go to hawks nest state park or bouldering below the new river gorge bridge.

Very scenic falls. Easy access, right next to the road pretty much. Picnic table on site.
