Crabtree Falls

Crabtree Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Crabtree Falls might be the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi, depending on how you qualify a waterfall, but Crabtree Falls is doubtless the highest waterfall in Virginia.

Crabtree Falls is actually a name given to five major waterfalls (and several smaller ones) on Crabtree Creek, which flows into Tye River. Within 0.5 mile, the creek drops 1,200 feet, including one vertical drop of 500 feet."

Only did 2 of the falles list in this chapter. THe goal was to bag as many falls as possible during the long weekend. The trail head to Hooker and Triple Falls was crowded but worth not parking near by. Hooker falls is a neat fall but very busy with swimers. Triple Falls was the best. What an impressive fall. I will do the hike again during a time when the crowed is less. The hike is easy for someone of relative fittness. Truly a great waterfall. A must see!
