Visited here on a tip from a ranger in Pipestem state park. It was a fun place to explore and play around at. Some locals jumped off the top into the water but I wasn't ready for that. We did swim at the bottom and the top was safe enough to walk around on and explore. Really cool!

First visit. Easy to find. Not a lot of parking available if its a busy day. The short walk is not difficult but the path is very rocky. The path down to the base of the falls is moderately steep but not difficult either. A very picturesque spot!

Parked at a picnic area on Brush Creek Falls Rd. About a 1000 foot hike on flat terrain. We go to waterfalls all over the east coast and this is one of the best.

This is where I jumped from the top of a waterfall for the first time...totally awsome!!!! I reccommend this place to anyone looking to add a little adventure in their life. Easy to find and beautiful scenary to just sit back relax and cool off in the water. You can also swim under the water fall.

Brush Creek Falls is an easy 1/2 mile or so hike along Brush Creek. Bring a picnic and enjoy the afternoon exploring the falls and the remains of an old lumber mill ~ some of the stone walls are still standing just down from the falls. You will hear the falls before you get to them. Make sure you pass... More
