This is one of those places as a local we take all our family to when they come to visit. It doesn't matter the season it's a wonderful view. This time happened to be in the summer and was beautiful with the trees and plants in bloom. It's a great spot for pictures or to have a picnic. The downside... More

Great waterfall and my friends on Facebook loved the pictures. No trespassing sign that a lot of folks ignored. Wish there was a good path down to the falls.

Nice picture taking spot. Wish we could have gotten closer. Short walk to the left to get to picture taking spot for the actual waterfall.

It is absolutely beautiful but the only way we could actually get to the falls was to go where it says no trespassing, like everyone else. It was steep to get down but well worth the trip if you can manage it. Wish I had been in river sandals instead of barefoot to walk around it easier. A must see... More

There is a small are to park to view the Falls. It's a beautiful sight to see in any season! We have enjoyed being close to the Falls and showing it off to visitors.

This is a must see if you are in the area. It is especially beautiful in the fall when all the trees are showing their colors. Also beautiful the rest of the year too. There is a short walk from the parking lot to the best view of the Falls.

If you're in the Lake Moomaw/Covington area, you should NOT miss this. I thought it was just a view of a waterfall. When we got there we weren't wearing swim clothes and were so inclined to get under the falls and feel with the beauty! It's an enormous waterfall and there's many areas around it to swim. The water is... More

I solo rode my motorcycle from DC to see this site and it was breathtaking, and the history behind was it was surprising. It is right on 220 so you can't miss it. Highly recommend it on your next mountain retreat. very close to the Omni Homestread resort.
