Virginia’s Scenic Waterfall Loop Will Take You To 9 Different Waterfalls
Who doesn’t love a good road trip? Here at Only In Virginia, we’ll take nearly any excuse to hop in our cars and explore the beautiful landscape that Virginia has to offer. If you agree with this sentiment, then you’ll be excited by today’s featured road trip: a waterfall loop through Virginia. While the itinerary doesn’t cover even half of the impressive waterfalls you’ll find in our state, you can look forward to experiencing nine different falls, ranging from gentle cascades to rushing gorges.
The driving portion requires a little less than eight hours, not including potential hiking and viewing time. If you’re interested in seeing all of the waterfalls on the route, be sure to plan ahead by booking a campsite or finding overnight accommodations.
