Chestnut Creek Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The New River Trail, a railroad grade–turned–trail, leads you to this wide cascade. New River Trail State Park is Virginia’s longest park, extending more than 57 miles along a former rail bed. The rail-trail is the primary attraction, as it courses along a cinder bed and over trestles that span Chestnut Creek and the New River. Bicyclers are the primary users, though equestrians and hikers will travel portions of the path. The trail demonstrates how, in our modern era, we can preserve scenic natural areas in the midst of human habitation."
