Slide Show: 11 must-see waterfalls in West Virginia

Randall Sanger hiked off the beaten path for a rare view of Blackwater Falls from river-level. 

Blackwater Falls may be the best known waterfall in West Virginia, in part because of its prominence as centerpiece of Blackwater Falls State Park. The Blackwater River is so-named for spruce tannins that tinge its waters brown. Here Sanger left established park trails behind and hiked along the river to capture the cataract’s distinct curtain from downstream in the canyon of the Blackwater.
