This is a little out of the way but it is beautiful. It is clean and well kept and the 200 step walkway to the falls is well maintained. Definitely recommend.

One of WV's finest state parks. The falls themselves are beautiful, of course, and there is plenty of great hiking leading to beautiful overlooks and other waterfalls. The cabins are a very nice place to stay.

On this trip to the falls my husband and I stumbled onto the "gentle trail" to the falls. It is not as close and the view is from a different angle but it was a very easy walk and the views were magnificent.

We went down the stairs that most everyone use to get to the falls, but there was a trail/walking path that we took back up. I feel like it was to the left of the stairs but I’m not positive about the location- it was fairly... More
