During your trip to West Virginia, you may need some solitude or downtime in nature; what better way to find this than to visit a waterfall.
Whether it is the simple act of a gentle (or vigorous, if you choose) walk in nature or the sight of the water cascading over the rocks, your time visiting all the beautiful waterfalls will be well spent.
Each waterfall is a little different and offers a variety of gorgeous scenes to photograph and enjoy.
Whether you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path type of waterfall-like Elakala Falls or something a little more accessible, you will find a place where you can connect with nature and enjoy incredible views.
Salt Lick Falls- It’s a nice waterfall but, you need to find a place to park and then get down into the ravine between WV 7 and Crane Ave. Follow the route of the tracks to a bend where Saltlick Creek comes in. From the Bridge St. crossing, it’s about .5 mile walk.
