My first time ever seeing a natural waterfall (not man made) I loved every second of it. I had my small daughter with me so I didn't get to hike to the bottom. I did walk down the trail to the top of the waterfall. It's just an amazing scenery pictures don't give it justice at all!

Falling Springs is not only one of the most fabulous waterfalls in Virginia ~ it's the only one Thomas Jefferson noted in his "Notes on the State of Virginia." At an 80ft drop that spreads out at least half that at times, this is a must see for any waterfall lover. There is a lovely overlook, and if you circle... More

A beauty of a waterfall, easy to get to and you don't have to hike anywhere to see it. Just park the car and walk 30 steps. Take 15 mins to stop by and see this beauty.

Beautiful waterfall with views of the mountains in the background. We can't wait to see this in the Fall when the leaves change color. If your headed North on route 220 this will be on your left hand side. The parking lot isn't very large. Holds maybe a dozen or so cars. No parking for large vehicles such as large... More

The waterfall, which can be seen from the road is beautiful. If you're facing the waterfall and walk to the right of the fencing you can take a path to the top of the waterfall. I would be hesitant to take small children because there are no fences to keep them safe. I went at the beginning of May was... More

Lovely waterfall. A nice walkway provided for optimum photo ops. Wish there was a path to meander about.

Find the path leading down the falls. The hike is not an easy hike but it's not to bad. I would recommend hiking boots or the like. Walk the trails it is so worth it. You can also get to the edge of the waterfall. They are a lot of cliffs and couple of odd caverns.

This is just a few miles from the Humpback Bridge in Covington. Take Rt 220 out of Covington. You will wind up the mountain. As you get to the top watch for a pull-off on the left. There is a parking area large enough for 6-8 cars. If you start heading back down the mountain, you've gone too far. Turn... More

Beautiful and easy to find, wish we could have hiked it from below. Gorgeous views of the valley, great parking, and safe walk along the mountain road.

What wonderful surprise!! We were on our way home from Wv, and happened to see the falls. It is gorgeous! These are right on Rt 220 just North of Covington, Va. They are particularly good for those who are unable to make the hike that is required to see most falls. There's room for several cars to park on the... More
