Falls of Dismal Professional Review and Guide
"What a name! What a waterfall! The Falls of Dismal may not be the highest, the most voluminous, or the widest waterfall in this guide, but it certainly has the most intriguing name. Who wouldn’t want to see the Falls of Dismal? And with a short 0.1-mile path to the falls, almost everyone can enjoy the Falls of Dismal. If you wish to make it more of a hike, you can join the Appalachian Trail northbound from VA 606. Via that path, it is about 1.4 miles one-way to the Falls of Dismal."
