“More of a walk than a hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

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 entire way to the lower falls and took my time at both the middle and lower falls. The round trip only took about 35-40 minutes. There are certainly a lot of steps to take so if you have someone that is not in good shape you want to be careful as the walk down is simple but there are close to 400 steps when coming back from the lower falls. If you are really looking to do some hiking this is not it but if you have 30-40 minutes and want to see some beautiful spots in nature I definitely recommend this stop. One thing that was concerning was the signs posted that said to not leave valuables in your vehicle as common thieves frequent the area.

“Worth stopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

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.

“Beautiful falls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

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.

“Nice scenic area to hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

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.

“Nature all around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

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 Virginia forest. It is also good if you can go after there has been rain since that affects the amount of water going over the falls.
