Such a pretty place! The falls aren't high as you might imagine, rather they break over a series of low rock ledges that spread and curve out over the river. Imagine a baby Niagara. There's a boardwalk that affords you an easy walk to view...More

The road to the falls is awful. There is road work for over 6 miles. So places are so rough car bottomed out.

This path is nicely maintained and easy to navigate. Don't let the road detract from getting to the falls, it is worth the trip, Bring your picnic supplies as there are tables and grills. For some relaxation take a fishing poll along.

It's a bit of a drive down the west side of the New River from Hinton. The park below the falls has the concrete restroom and a great series of trails and bridges going out to the New River. The view of the falls is...More

Definitely won't be done anytime soon. Like a previous poster said, probably not even this year. The road is narrow and really rough in some places but it's certainly passable. There were many different kinds of vehicles... More

There are two places to see Sandstone falls. The one you want to go to is on the New River Road (WV26) which is pretty much at the river level. If you go to the falls overlook on WV20 then you will be high up off the river... More
