Fodor's Review

A series of cascades fall a distance of 1,200 feet. Taken together, Virginia claims these cascades as the highest waterfall east of the Rockies, though no single waterfall within the series would qualify as such. Whatever the superlatives or qualifications, the falls are a wondrous sight. A trail winds up a steep mountainside all the way to the top, but the first overlook is an easy stroll 700 feet from the lower parking lot. The best time to see the waterfalls is winter

through spring, when the water is high.

Crabtree Falls Review

Wonderful hike beside cascading falls. If you can reach the top, you will not be disappointed! Trail can be icy during the winter months. Well worth the trip!!!
