Rate this Adventure West Virginia Cathedral Falls

Added by Elyse Clark

This is a gorgeous 60+ foot roadside waterfall close to the New River Gorge. 

Since this waterfall is less than 200 feet from the parking lot, visiting this waterfall provides a huge reward for minimal physical effort. From the parking lot, cross the bridge over the stream and follow the trail on the right side of the stream/waterfall.  To have the best view of the falls cross the stream (there are plenty of big rocks to do so).  Early morning is optimal for long exposure photography.

**The road to Nuttallburg is part gravel and only wide enough for one car. Take caution driving along this road-you may have to back up some if you meet another car.
