Falling Spring Falls is arguably one of Virginia’s most iconic waterfalls. Nestled in the Alleghany Highlands, this landmark has been admired for centuries. In fact, Thomas Jefferson himself once noted that the falls were nothing short of “remarkable.” At the time, he believed them to be the most impressive waterfall in the country. This crown jewel of Covington is certainly worth the trip, yet few realize just how accessible the waterfall is. Located just off of Route 220, the falls can be admired right from your car. Here’s more on this beautiful destination that every Virginian should experience.
