The river wasn't flowing heavily but we still got to view the falls. There are 3 levels starting with the top. The top falls is an easy walk and after that the decked trail becomes many terraced stairways. Whew! Not for the weak of knees. Before you get to the lower level, there is a spiral stairway like a lighthouse.... More

Just be prepared to walk. It is a decent hike, great falls at the end. The trek is worth the view. I never get enough of WV.

The kids and dog loved the walk down and there are several places to stop and view or rest if someone when need it. To get to the last fall, you have to walk down some steep staircases and I was afraid that to try it with my dog. There was another area that had metal staircases (little spikes for... More

The quintessential beauty of West Virginia is on full display on the trails and the falls. The path and steps down to the lowest fall is well maintained, the most difficult part being the final descent, but it is mostly stairs. The trip down is worth it, postcard-like scenery all along the way. Allow for about an hour, my 79... More

We have an SUV and a little bit of adventure, so even though the road was unplowed we forged ahead. It's about a quarter mile to get to where to park to take the trails to the falls. The women's bathroom was closed but the men's open. Not sure what was up with that, maybe because it's winter. Either way... More

I was looking for a good hike and this was recommended by an individual in Lewisburg. While it was not really a hike I am thankful I took the trip out. The trail is very well maintained; however, the steps can be slippy so you really want to be careful when going down the stairs. I took the "trail" the... More

Very nice falls. What i liked was on the lower falls you can go under them. I wished I was wearing a suit though. Very cool.

All three falls are gorgeous! The boardwalks are very well maintained and make the trip easier. The hike to the last falls is pretty strenuous, but well worth it. Allow at least an hour for the round trip.

Like most of West Virginia, the Falls of Hills Creek is a very beautiful area. Many sections of the boardwalk have been replaced and it's a nice hike to the lower falls. Lots of steps to climb back up! There were several people enjoying this area when we hiked in October.

Falls of Hills Creek is a lovely area to go hiking. Be aware that there are many stairs to get to the lower falls, which means many stairs to climb back up. But it is well worth it, the hike on the trails that follow Hills Creek are very is to follow and are surrounded by wild and wonderful West... More
