I was here in August 2014 when the river was at minimal levels, but still the falls were beautiful. The falls are not high but very long and can be viewed from many angles and up close ... depending on the flow of water of course. You can follow the boardwalk and small bridge to the river for a good... More

It takes a bit of driving to get to Sandstone Falls, but the trip is worth it. While the overlooks along the way to the Falls are worth a stop, the true experience is best had at eye level with the New River and the Falls itself. Powerful yet peaceful at the same time, this place is definitely worth a... More

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.

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.
