These falls are very pretty but it's a very small stream and the falls are very high. You follow a narrow trail with several stopping points, so you don't have to commit to the whole thing. But it's very steep and the path meanders around a lot and is very steep. I'd call it a Moderate hike - doable with... More

The entry to the roadway that branches off the main road did not have any markings one way so we missed it. Thankfully in the drive back search, we found the marker (better marking the other way) and made it to the hike. Our GPS just had "Cabins at Crabtree" or soemthing like that and the branch road was a... More

We hiked these beautiful falls that can be seen all the way up, up, up the hill. It's a steep, switch-back trail that takes twice as long to climb than to walk down. Nice, shady hike.

Crowded day, but overall a wonderful hike - a bit challenging but not too crazy. The view of the mountains from the top is breath-taking! If you go beyond the falls to the Appalaichan trail, it's a nice, easy hike - not nearly as vigorous as getting up to the top of the falls. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy... More

Be prepared for lots of uphill, but if you don't mind that, this is a delightful hike with many views of rushing falls. Very lovely! You can access the top form a campgrounds, but I recommend hiking up form the bottom to enjoy all the views. Really a scenic hike! Note: there is wheelchair access to the lowest viewpoint. Toilets...

We loooooove this place! Always a view of the falls and dog friendly. This is by far the best waterfall hike in virginia. This place is a must!!! Go to it and hike but bring food, no where to eat!

Beautiful 2.1 mile hike to the top of Crabtree Falls. Quiet, peaceful and serene, but not for the faint of heart.

Great trip! Recommend going all the way to the top of the falls to see the mountain view. Spy rock is a few miles down the road. Would recommend them together in the same day. Both great views.

Beautiful scenery. Able to just take your time and take in all the surroundings. There were other people on the trails but it was still just very quaint.
