The rigorous 2.6-mile trail to South River Falls, where cascades tumble 83 feet from top to rocks, is worth the challenge. Streaming from a staggering cliff in the Shenandoah woodlands, South River Falls is best appreciated from the observation point on the gorge's left bank.

Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Use the South River Falls Trail to combine a productive spring/summer birding excursion with a 4.5-mile circuit hike to visit the park's third highest waterfall (and a great swimming hole).
  • What makes this trail special is that it lies within the breeding territory of half a dozen or more species of warbler, including the black-throated blue, Blackburnian, and cerulean warblers.
