Waterfalls of the Southern Valley and Ridge Region Professional Review and Guide
"This region doesn’t have very many waterfalls, which seems a little unusual since most of it is mountainous. But what it lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality. If it had no other falls than Cascades, it would rank high on the list of Virginia waterfall destinations.
There are a few other waterfalls that are definitely worth visiting as well, and a host of other scenic locations, not to mention the historic towns of Blacksburg and Lexington and a slew of interesting smaller communities. This eTrail covers 5 waterfalls in this region including Roaring Run Falls, Cascades, Upper Cascades, Waterfall at Falls Ridge, and Falls of Dismal."
