Falling Spring Falls

Falls are approximately 7 miles from the City of Covington and located directly on Rt. 220, on the left (between Covington and Hot Springs)

A peaceful, scenic wayside. Thomas Jefferson described it as a “remarkable cascade…falling over a rock about 200 feet to the valley below.” One of the largest falls in Virginia, it cascades from an overhanging ledge, and is easily visible from the roadway.
