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."

Very easy, flat and well maintained trail. The falls are small, but a nice stop. If you cross the train trestle and turn to the left about 100 feet down the main trail, there is a small trail that will take you down to the rocks overlooking the falls.
