View Area Map

Directions: access via the parking area at South River picnic grounds at mile 62.8 along the Skyline Drive. Trailhead is located on your right as you drive into the third parking area. The falls can be seen from an observation point along the trail, but the best view is from its base. Use the blue-blazed trail just below the observation point, which follows an old road trace, and leads to the river. Once you are at the river, turn right to see the blue-blazed trail and work your way towards the base.
