The Highest Waterfall in West Virginia

This set of three cascading waterfalls fall 20 feet, 45 feet and then 65 feet. The first falls feature a paved and handicapped accessible area. The handicap accessible boardwalk is 1,700 feet long and goes through a rhododendron and laurel canopy. There are two viewing decks available, which provide places for photographing and just enjoying the views. This scenic area is comprised of 114 acres.

The second falls in the cascade are accessible from a dirt walkway. It is filled with rocks and small boulders, and continues on to the third waterfall.
