Fallingwater Cascades Blue Ridge Parkway MP 83.1
2.1 miles, moderate terrain
27-mile drive, $2.50 carpool fee
Located in Botetourt County, this loop hike goes down a
short, scenic trail to Fallingwater Cascades. This is a
scenic stream just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The trail
will follow the stream for a short distance before
ascending back to the trail head. Trail is north of Peaks of Otter Lodge. Suggest a stop at the lodge for a restroom break.
Market Square East is a suggestion for carpool meeting. You may choose to make your own arrangements. I live in Botetourt and will be meeting all at the Fallingwater Cascades Trailhead at Blue Ridge Parkway Trailhead 83.1 parking lot. There are a limited # of parking spaces here.
Snow and Ice will cancel the hike due to the parkway gates will be closed to access.
