Big Branch Falls

Big Branch Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This is perhaps the least-visited, trail-accessible waterfall in all of Shenandoah National Park. Enjoy the seclusion. Start on Skyline Drive, descending to North Fork Moormans River. Cruise along the scenic stream, with cascades and pools in a deep valley bordered by high ridges.

Everywhere-you-look beauty overlays this gorge bordered by Pasture Fence Mountain on one side and the crest of the Blue Ridge on the other. Finally, climb along low-flow Big Branch, with its open watery bowls divided by rock slabs, where the stream flows in slide cascades."
