... prettiest hike in Virginia!! One of the best times to see it is in the winter when the falls start to freeze. AND, don't climb the falls. Be nice to the local rescue squad.

Beautiful area... actually hiked up the river/stream half way instead of the trails. Water was cold but so refreshing and the scenery was just breathtaking. Every other word was "Oohhh and Ahhhh"

Excellent hike to the falls. Take the lower trail to walk right along the stream, and then use the upper trail to walk back. It was cool through the valley, so take a jacket and a picnic lunch.

Ok, this is a hike...legit. Especially if you take the scenic look. This is all nature, no frills, no gift shop all nature. Be sure to bring water for your hike. It's rugged two miles up on the lower trail. It is truly beautiful to...More

The falls here are beautiful! We loved our visit here! It was an easy hike up and back. The trail was very well maintained!! Several food options are very close.

A beautiful nature trail and a memorable waterfall right here in Pembroke. This is another of my "must see" places to visit. Its a little over a mile one way, a little rugged for those not used to walking long distances, wear some good walking...More

You will need $3, exact change, to park and visit the falls. There are bathrooms next to the parking lot; they have a family, ladies, and men's restrooms. RECOMMENDATION: Take the lower trail to the falls and the upper trail back (follow the steps up)...More

This was a pleasant surprise -- tucked away in Jefferson National Forest, a real treat for those that enjoy the outdoors. The picture tells the story of the falls - a great place to simply sit and enjoy what you're seeing. It's well worth a...More

The beginning of the "upper" trail might work but not all the way to the falls. We came across someone pushing a stroller with much difficulty. I would NOT suggest it.

Sorry for the delay. The research I found would indicate No. You can be on the A.T in Giles county near Pearisburg but not from the cascades.

there are always some wildflowers during the spring and summer. I think the fall is spectacular, though.
