West Virginia Waterfalls
Sandstone Falls No trip to the New River Gorge in West Virginia is complete without paying a visit to the largest falls on the New River....Sandstone Falls. At a span of approximately 1500 feet and a height of 10-25 feet, the falls themselves are quite a sight to behold. There is a nice boardwalk and a few islands spanning the river to explore as well. Please feel free to share and if you wish, give my page a "Like" as well. --JBP
Lower Falls - This falls lies below Shupe's Chute on the river. It is difficult to get to via Potato Knob trail especially if the water level is high. An alternate way to get there is to cross the river at the Chute and follow an old forest service trail downriver. The rock shelf goes completely across the river and one can even go back of the falls.
Upper Falls - This is a "must see" for people visiting the Mountain Parkway and Holly River State Park. The upgraded road, parking lot, observation deck and stairs to the base of Upper Falls add to the accessibility of this natural treasure. It is four miles from Rt. 20 on County Rt. 3 (Hacker Valley/Pickens Road) to the falls driveway.
