The Walk/Access: From Damascus, take U.S. 58 east for about 6 miles. The waterfall and a small pullover will be on the left side of the road. There is no sign or marker for the falls, so keep your eyes peeled. If you see Feather Camp Rd or Bear Tree Gap Rd you’ve gone too far.
The Added Lure: While in Damascus—one of Virginia’s top trail towns—rent a bike and pedal a portion of the 34-mile Virginia Creeper Trail. The trail follows several mountain streams through canopied forests, passing over numerous converted railroad trestles, bridges, and quaint, country farms.
Grab a Bite: Just outside Damascus, in Meadowview, lies Steven Hopp and Barbara Kingsolver’s experimental farm-to-table eatery, Harvest Table Restaurant. Rest assured, Chef Phillip Newton’s daily reprised farm-fresh menu will make for an interesting and delectable occasion.
