Beautiful place! Definitely worth the walk to see the falls. The trail is easy to walk on and the photo ops are numerous. Loved seeing this scenic jewel of West Virginia.

This is a series of three waterfalls, the first being handicapped accessible, I believe this waterfall drops about 20 feet or more and is beautiful in itself. To view the next two falls, you must be in reasonably good physical condition as there are many...More

Not sure about a charcoal pit AT the falls, but there is a picnic area just down the road at Cramberry glades.
