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.
