The Shallow Cave Beach Behind This Rushing West Virginia Waterfall Is A Cool, Refreshing Hideaway

Mercer County, West Virginia is a waterfall hunter’s paradise. There are multiple falls within mere miles from one another, including Brush Creek Falls, which is one of the largest cascades in West Virginia. It’s a beautiful spot to sit and watch the roaring water from the pebbled river-stone beach at its base. But unless you get down on the level with the bottom of the falls, you might not realize what other fascinating natural formation Brush Creek Falls features: a cave hollowed out of the river rock that curves back behind the waterfall!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have you hiked to Brush Creek Falls before? What did you think? For directions and more information, see Visit Mercer County’s website!  And for a completely different kind of cave/waterfall pairing, don a hard hat and head to Sharps Cave.
