I had the place to myself - 25 degrees, sun shining. The views and fresh air were spectacular. My only complaint was to Google Maps for taking me in down Irish Hill Rd. It is not paved, treacherous at best!

We visited in January just prior to the snowfall. The views of the falls were great and the boardwalk a nice walk out over the river and on the islands.

A great setting on the New river .. Don't be fooled when you first get there because the first side of it is not the deal . You have to take the little hike through the woods to get to the bigger side ... Not a very high fall but still pretty impressive !!!

Excellent way for a quick walk to see the falls and stretch your legs. Nice little path to the falls. A bunch of people were fishing if that's your scene.

The hiking trail to the falls is not very long. You can get really close to the fall by following the unmarked trail off the boardwalk. We had a great time there. Like other reviewers mentioned, it took about 30 min drive from the visitor center to the falls. But it's a nice and relaxing drive along the river. I... More

Visiting the Huntington, WV area recently and we are always looking for opportunities to see waterfalls so decided to go to Sandstone Falls after visiting Hawks Nest State Park. It looks a lot closer on the map than it really is so be prepared for a long drive depending on where you are coming from. There is a visitor center... More

even if this takes you a long time to get here, you def should check this out. its absolutely beautiful and something that puts you at ease. there is history on the falls and a trial that takes you around to the other side.
