A waterfall on the Tygart Valley River serves as the focal point for Valley Falls State Park, a preserve in which geology, history, and recreation combine in equal measure. The stone ruins of grain and timber mills that served area communities have been preserved and interpreted, and visitors are invited to carefully explore the grassy verges that remain among their walls. Valley Falls drop over ledges of the Connequenessing Sandstone, which famously outcrops elsewhere nearby at Blackwater Falls State Park and Coopers Rock State Forest. The river is a favorite destination for anglers and kayakers, and hikers and picnickers will find plenty of trails to explore.
Directions: Valley Falls State Park is located near Fairmont, WV, in Marion County, in the Monongahela Valley Region of northern West Virginia (WV).
