My family drove through on a snowy day, but the views were still stunning. The visitor's center employees were kind to my son, who wanted to collect his national park stamps. We didn't very long because of the weather, but it was still a worthwhile visit.

I really wish wv state parks would have more money for updates, cleanups, ect....this spot could really be so much more. would go back, it was... More

Its a little off the beaten path...there is an overlook that does the falls NO justice, but does have a bathroom...there is a second overlook to view an eagle mating island but, without binoculars you wont see anything...then there is the falls....a nice boardwalk to allow young ones to run, as you stroll...many spots to view this extensively long line...

My husband and I visited the Sandstone Falls during our "Journey of Love" started in Orlando, Florida.This is a unique and spectacular place.No photo can show the beauty of this place. It's a wilderness place away from hotels and bustle of the city where you can enjoy the nature. . From the Pipestem State Park take State Route 20 north.... More

Don't settle for seeing one distant end of the falls from the boardwalk. At the end of the boardwalk there are a couple steps leading to a small path into the woods... TAKE IT. Cross a very small creek, go around/over some rocks and voila you are now mere feet from the full mist-in-your-face screaming falls. Absolutely stunning. We had... More

Sandstone Falls was our favorite New River Area waterfall and worth a visit but it takes a little effort to get to the falls at water level. The best way to access the falls is from I64 taking exit 139 and following WV 20 south about 11 mi (18 k) to Hinton and cross the New River on the WV... More

This is a beautiful breath taking thing to see. It's a bit of a climb to get close to the falls so make sure you wear shoes with good tread for the slippery rocks.

I had seen photos posted online of this West Virginia State Park, mostly using the Niagara Falls type view of them, and was astounded that as a West Virginia native, I had never seen or even heard of them. The falls are very accessible from both most every direction from Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Maryland and Pennsylvania. I left Huntington,... More

This place is fabulous! I don't think I've ever been so surprised that a place I've hardly heard of turned out to be so great. It's difficult to get to, but well worth the effort. Don't even try to find it on your own, you'll notice the other reviewers are mostly locals. Stop at the Sandstone Visitor Center off I-64... More

The falls are a bit tricky to find. If you are at the lookout above the falls, keep driving. You have about 10 more miles to go! The road will take you to Hinton (about 5 miles) where you will cross the bridge. Then you will snake back up the other side of the river for five more miles on... More
