Height: 140 feet in several cascades.
The Walk/Access: From I-81 take exit 188-A for Buffalo and head east on US-60 for 13.6 miles. Take a left onto state Route 605 (Pedlar River Rd) and go about 2.2 miles. Look for the top of the falls just off the road and to the right. There is a small parking area about 100 yards prior to the falls on the left.
The Added Lure: Make this a George Washington National Forest/Pedlar River two-for-the-price-of-one by visiting nearby Panther Falls. At just 9.5 road-miles away, the destination offers a quick hike (less than a mile) down to a pair of massive boulders from which you can leap into what is typically an 8-12-foot pool of water below.To get there, return to US-60 and head west for about 3.2 miles. Hang a left onto Panther Falls Rd, which you’ll stay on, through various slight forkings, for about 4.1 miles. Look for the trailhead and parking lot to be on your left.
Grab a Bite: For a dose of fine, farm-to-table dining, cut out for the Red Hen in Lexington. With predominantly locally-sourced ingredients and ultra-creative Italian fare, this is a palate pleaser.
