My husband and I travel this scenic route every year in October. And this is a must stop location for us. It is very romantic and a very good location for taking pictures. It is a lot of walking and alot of steps, but worth every step and hill it takes to get down and back. Make sure you wear... More

Beautiful and romantic walk. Must be able to walk stairs but it is cooler here than the usual surrounding areas.

We have been to Blackwater Falls numerous times and we had not even heard of these falls.. We kinda stumbled upon the by accident. I am not sure why more people haven't talked about these falls! They are gorgeous. Fair warning, there are a lot of stairs! So if you have bad knees or anything, be very careful! And make... More

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 steps to descend. The second falls is much wider and drops about 40-45 feet. From... More

The correct GPS coordinates are N 38*10.678' and W 080*20.311'. We walked to all three falls and took the shortcut on the way back. It is great that these events in West Virginia are free.

This is a moderate hiking facility. A lot of stairs to climb so you will need to be in fairly good shape. I would not recommend for wheelchairs. Children will need to be watched closely but they will love the views.

A place you must visit. A place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and just relax and enjoy nature. The falls are beautiful in wet weather. To see all three falls requires physical endurance, especially the last fall, but it is worth the effort.

I've visited a good number of waterfalls across the country and this is definitely one of my favorites. After a gentle short level hike you begin the trek down to different levels of the falls (staircase at each major bend). Each view is different, especially as the lighting changes with each bend. Well worth it - just take your time,... More
