Jun 01, Crabtree Falls Hiking Trail The scenic mile loop trail to Crabtree Falls is moderate to strenuous with a steep incline and rocky terrain.

Hikers should allow to hours for the entire hike. The more adventuresome hiker may continue along the 3-mile trail to four other overlooks offering spectacular views of the Crabtree Creek Falls and lovely vistas of the Tye River Valley.

From the upper falls, the trail follows the creek another miles to the Crabtree Meadows. Open dawn to dusk. Parking lot with daily parking fee per vehicle. Crabtree Falls, the highest vertical-drop cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River, is a popular attraction located in Nelson County, Virginia, just six miles off the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway near milepost Mar 22, It’s been one of my favorite VA hikes so far.

The hike to Crabtree Falls is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a mile loop with amazing falls and lots of picture opportunities. But beware there are a lot of stairs. Crabtree Falls Hiking Trail – Blue Ridge Parkway (U.S. National Park Service) ( Address: Crabtree Falls Highway.

The hike is part of the George Washington National Forest, and can easily be combined with nearby Crabtree Falls (ft cascading waterfall with a hike to the top). The entire trip is miles, and there are nice campsites at the base of the summit (no water source) if you want to add on this pretty overlook to a nearby longer hike.

Crabtree Falls is a beautiful waterfall, the highest east of the Mississippi. At 1, feet in total, it is impressive by any standard. While not just one big drop, this waterfall of many big and medium cascades all in succession makes a very worthwhile hour day hike. Overall very nice hike, about 6 hours in length. In winter, navigating the trail along the Crabtree Falls can be very tricky, as parts of the trail may be covered by ice.

At the top of the falls, the trail continues on the right side of the creek (looking upstream, the bridge is on your left).
