Visit Alleghany County and the Falling Springs Falls

January 7, 2022

Falling Spring Falls is a breathtaking 80’ waterfall that is one of the most visited and photographed spots in the Alleghany Highlands. The scenic waterfall is located on Route 220 in Alleghany County, just five miles north of Covington, Virginia. The property has had extensive renovations to the overlook and grounds, including a picnic area, so that visitors can more safely stop and enjoy the view. Thomas Jefferson described the Falling Spring Falls 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.

Please note, venturing from the overlook to explore the Falls is dangerous and illegal. The area beyond the fence is posted as no trespassing and violators are subject to fine.
