Most People Drive Right Past This Stunning West Virginia Waterfall Without Even Realizing It

Have you ever wondered how many waterfalls there are in West Virginia? Some estimate around 250; if we were to guess, we’d say at least that many! And while some are well-known and often-visited, others are remote and rarely seen. Dunloup Falls, located between Glen Jean and Thurmond in West Virginia’s New River Gorge National River, lands somewhere between these two extremes: it’s popular with the locals, but many others drive right on past it, none-the-wiser.

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!
