Two new cascades added to West Virginia Waterfall Trail


Charleston, W.Va. –– The West Virginia Waterfall Trail has added two sets of falls, Cranberry Creek Cascades and Little Whitestick Falls, part of the newly opened Piney Creek Preserve and Recreational area in Raleigh County. The waterfall trail has added eleven cascades over the past six months with more plans to expand in the near future.

“When we announced the waterfall trail last summer, we never imagined the excitement it would generate,” said West Virginia Tourism Secretary Chelsea Ruby. “The West Virginia Land Trust and City of Beckley deserve huge accolades for making these gorgeous falls accessible to outdoor enthusiasts via the brand new Piney Creek Preserve and Recreational Area. I’m eager for West Virginia Waterfall fans to start making their way to this amazing preserve, along with the additions to the trail in Raleigh County.”
