Visit stops on the WV Waterfall Trail


Chasing waterfalls takes on a whole new meaning in West Virginia with the first-ever statewide Waterfall Trail. The trail, which earned recognition from Travel + Leisure, was created for travelers looking to get off the beaten path, reconnect with nature and discover more than two dozen waterfalls for a chance to win exclusive prizes.

With over 200 waterfalls found across the state, the more than two dozen cascades featured along the trail are the perfect way to kick off a summer of waterfall hunting.

Some, like Cathedral, tower above the valley floor, while others span wide rivers.
