Hidden Gem

Beautiful waterfall....right along the highway. We stopped in July 2021. There is a small parking area with picnic tables. Short stroll to view the falls. Area above the falls is completely fenced off now. (Last time we visited despite signs folks were swimming below the falls. I suppose the fence is intended to prevent these sorts of adventures.) Very lovely spot for a quick stop.

Gorgeous in All Seasons

Stunning waterfall, simply put. Drive will wind up a mountain (expect curves). Has parking area, very short paved walk to the Falls. Easy-to-access from Evergreen Inn, the Homestead, and the City of Covington. Consider connecting your visit with a stop on the Jackson River Scenic Trail. Free to visit. Picnic tables available at parking area (outside direct view of falls but nicely shaded). Also a short drive from another overlook to enjoy the mountain views.

Beautiful view just off Rt 220.

Space for about 7 cars to park. Very pretty. There was a man there with a very expensive camera and tripod taking pictures.

Worth the drive

It is a very pretty view and does not require a hike. The view is about 100 feet from the parking area so its perfect if you want a nice view.

A Beautiful Stop Along Rt220!
Jun 2021
This is such a beautiful place to visit… albeit, it’s a quick stop, as there’s not much more to do that stare at the beautiful waterfall and take pics. But it’s a must see when driving on this stretch of Rt220!

Spectacular Falls
Jun 2021 • Couples
Beautiful falls you can see driving by but you’ll want to stop at parking area to take in the view. The only downer was the litter and ugly fencing did not help with first impressions.

Lovely Falls

Beautiful waterfall. Can be seen from US Route 60 about seven miles south of Covington. There’s an overlook where you can park.

Gorgeous place with amazing scenery! We arrived first when it was very foggy which made for an incredible scene and when it was clear later in the day, the lighting was perfect!

It is difficult to believe that this beauty is so easy to view. The overlook is easily assessable by just pulling off the highway. Stunning views await
