Naked Creek Falls are located off-trail just a short hike from Naked Creek Overlook. This is a bushwhack hike that takes you into the Shenandoah National Park backcountry.

Please note that there is no trail leading to these falls.  This hike is for advanced hikers.

Park your car at Naked Creek Overlook in Shenandoah National Park and walk through the field staying to the left. As you start to enter the woods you will hear the creek running on your left. Make your way to the creek and follow it down to the falls.  The hike is easier if you stay towards the right of the creek.  You will need to climb down/over rocks and fallen trees at times. The creek has a series of falls that are wonderful for photographing.

On your return trip, be sure to stay with the creek to make your way back to your car. 

This hike is not recommended during any other season as the area becomes overgrown with Stinging Nettles, other thorny plants and ticks.
