Just a short drive away for me and a nice place to spend an afternoon. Good for hiking and/or just sitting and watching the falls. I got to see a kayaker shoot the falls on my recent visit. It is absolutely gorgeous in the fall, just note that the rest rooms close for the season, so plan ahead for that!

Enjoyed the afternoon of sitting in the sun, looking over at the falls while my husband hiked around to take photographs of the falls and the leaves. Lots of families there enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon - lots of picnic tables and a playground. Trail over to the falls, and many other trails in the park. It is a rather... More

Short drive for us and a great late afternoon adventure for my family. We have an 11 year old who is pretty adventurous. Valley Falls is a great place to do some basic hiking over rocks and view some great scenery. It's beautiful. Pet friendly too.

This park and waterfalls are georgeous. You have to drive a bit out of your way off WV 310, but the signs are well marked. Visit the old mill at the waterfalls. I hiked several trails on my visit and got a good workout. Some parts can be a bit steep.

The state park is at the end of a residential neighborhood with narrow streets and street parking. Once you get to the park, there is a fairly large set of parking lots that serve as the trail heads. About 100 yards from the parking lot across a very short bridge that takes you over the railroad tracks there are falls... More

If you are in the area I highly recommend driving to Valley Falls State Park. I love to visit waterfalls and hope to eventually see all of the ones in WV. These were definitely worth the drive. They are not the tallest falls, by far, but they are very wide and rapid. There are a couple of smaller trickles but... More

My sister and I decided to go State Park Hoping. I had some trouble finding Valley Falls, the Ranger was very helpful when I called. This is an easy walk, no big hills to climb if you dont want to. The Park is well maintained . A great get away .

Finding this place is an adventure in and of itself! I could sit and look at these falls all day. It was so peaceful and relaxing spending time at this beautiful place. There were two family photo sessions going on while we were there. We missed the leaves changing color but it was still a great find!

My family loves this park. We often visit to hike the trails. There are so many of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty making an excursion with young kids much easier. As always the playground is a perfect ending to a fun nature hike. And of course the falls are breathtaking.

Views of the falls on the Tygart River are breathtaking! Rushing water cutting through solid rock! My granddaughters and i visited this park and declared it our favorite so far. We spent so much time at the falls and surrounding rocks that we only had time for two of the trails which were great too. Tough walk back up though.... More
