Height: Around 80 feet.
The Walk/Access: This magnificent fall is located in the Alleghany Highlands, about five miles north of Covington, and is visible from U.S. 220.
The Added Lure: Snap a photo—the waterfall is one of the most picturesque and therefore photographed places in Virginia. Then head west to see the nearby Humpback Bridge, which, constructed in 1857, is considered the oldest remaining covered bridge in Virginia.
Grab a Bite: For a historical dining experience, check out the Cat and Owl Restaurant. From the falls you’ll pass back through Covington, head east on I-64, take the exit for Low Moor, hang a right and look for C&O’s sign on your right-hand side. Once inside, you’ll encounter vintage country-chic décor and a menu specializing in old-fashioned steak and seafood dishes. By old-fashioned, they mean the majority of entrees are cooked in an open-faced hearth, as if it were the early 19th century.
