Description

Sandstone Falls is a well known gem along the New River Gorge National River prized for its stunning beauty and ecological significance. Located at an ecological transition point on the river, Sandstone Falls marks the boundary between the broad, slow-moving New River seen south of this point and the roaring, gorge-incising New River seen to the north. Visitors running along the boardwalk can enjoy NPS displays cataloguing the differences between the two ecological zones and their respective plant and animal species.

Short Walk: Sandstone Falls can be accessed from the Sandstone Falls Boardwalk Parking Area via a 0.25 mile run along the Sandstone Falls Boardwalk

Gem Type: Waterfall

Mostly Dry, Some Mud, Fallen Trees - There are only two locations with fallen trees but they are easy to handle. There are several muddy spots but again they are easy to walk around. There are a couple of places where the trail narrows to a foot path due to erosion.
