The North Fork of the Blackwater River is filled with cascade after picturesque cascade as it makes its descent down toward the Blackwater Canyon. This waterfall-filled stream is one of West Virginia’s hidden gems, and part of what earned the state the nickname “Wild and Wonderful.” No truer nickname was ever coined, unless maybe it’s “Almost Heaven!”
