One of West Virginia’s tallest waterfalls can be found outside of Gauley Bridge, where Cane Creek drops some 60 feet over a rocky ledge of sandstone and shale. The waterfall is located just off of Highway 60, and can be seen with just a short walk from the parking area.

As with many waterfalls, water levels can be reduced to a trickle during dry times.
