In My Mind's Eye
Blackwater Falls State Park is one of the most popular parks in West Virginia. The grounds, centered around the amber Blackwater River and the main falls (Blackwater Falls), hold one of the most beautiful settings in the state. The park is situated at the northern edge of the Monongahela National Forest and the Cheat Mountain Range. Blackwater Canyon extends eight miles through the park and offers wonderful views, such as this scene. Trails weave along both sides of the gorge, that also lead to other cascading falls, Elakala, Pendleton and Falls Run.
