Dunloup Creek Falls

Dunloup Creek Falls drops 20 feet over a sandstone ledge on Dunloup Creek in southern Fayette County approximately three air-miles east of Glen Jean, WV, and three air-miles southwest of Thurmond, WV. As a result of its situation along highway WV-25 within the New River Gorge National River, the falls are easily accessible and much photographed. The overlook area beside the falls is unprotected, and care should be used on the banks approaching the falls.
