Finding this place is an adventure in and of itself! I could sit and look at these falls all day. It was so peaceful and relaxing spending time at this beautiful place. There were two family photo sessions going on while we were there. We missed the leaves changing color but it was still a great find!

My family loves this park. We often visit to hike the trails. There are so many of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty making an excursion with young kids much easier. As always the playground is a perfect ending to a fun nature hike. And of course the falls are breathtaking.

Views of the falls on the Tygart River are breathtaking! Rushing water cutting through solid rock! My granddaughters and i visited this park and declared it our favorite so far. We spent so much time at the falls and surrounding rocks that we only had time for two of the trails which were great too. Tough walk back up though.... More

It wasn't easy to find, even our hotel nearby did not know it existed. Found it on the WV state park web site. Serenity, beauty, and solitude combine for an unforgettable day.

About 20 minutes down lots of winding roads and feeling like it's well off of the interstate (use your GPS or other turn-by-turn navigation app), Valley Falls State Park is nicely secluded. So much so, don't be surprised if you lose your cell phone signal. There's plenty of parking at the park, however there's no concessions other than two drink... More

Another great WV park. It's perfect for a family and even a family with younger kids. The falls give some great viewing that everyone will enjoy. They offer a mix of hiking trails, tons of picnic tables for your family snack time, and a great playground that was a huge hit! A park that offers a little something for the... More

Valley Falls State Park is located between Grafton and Fairmont WV off route 310. After you pass private properties around a lake and go up the hill to the park office, there is a narrow and fairly steep paved grade down to the parking lot at the bottom of the hill. Be careful of people going to fast and taking... More

I went here for Mother's Day with my 12 year old daughter. Falls were located a 3-4 minute walk from the parking lot. We climbed on top of a large flat rock right next to the twin falls and a lunch with the best view I have ever seen :) you definitely want to make sure you have plenty of... More

Definitely a hidden gem. We recently moved to the area and will be coming back to this park frequently. There are lots of picnic areas, 18+ miles of hiking/mountain biking trails, and a beautiful lookout to the falls. There's also about 2 miles of great paved road that can be used for road biking. Really glad we hiked this park,... More

While I'm not a West Virginia resident, I have been working in the Fairmont area for a while now... and this is one of my favorite quiet and beautiful escapes from the noise of the city. This is a hidden gem tucked away a short 20 minute drive off of I-79. It is worth the detour off the beaten path.... More
