The Walk/Access: Take U. S. 460 into Pembroke and turn onto Cascade Dr (Va. T623) which, after about 3.1 miles, will bring you to the entrance of The Cascades National Scenic Trail. From the parking lot ($3 per car), follow the trail around two miles until you see the waterfall.
The Added Lure: Not far from the CNST, at the intersection of Cascade Drive and U.S. 460, lies Tangent Outfitters. Double up your adventure factor by hiking the falls early in the morning, then heading to Tangent Outfitters for a lunch in their café. Post lunch, canoe, kayak or paddle-board the New River from Eggleston down to the Pembroke landing. The scenic trip is about 7 miles, takes 2 – 3 hours to complete, and features smooth water with big limestone cliffs, excellent fishing, and occasional stretches of riffles and Class I rapids.
Grab a Bite: If you’re into Korean cuisine, there’s a gem in Pembroke by the name of Kal-Bee. A small, family owned operation, Kal-Bee serves all organic produce and encourages you to bring your own wine. One of those unique dining experiences that transcends the excellence of the food itself.
