Folly Mills Falls in Virginia

Folly Mills Falls – Augusta County – Virginia.

Folly Mills Falls are one of Staunton’s best-kept secrets!

This pretty waterfall is just 0.1 miles from the parking area along a very scenic short trail yet few people know it’s there!

It is especially beautiful after heavy rains but the trail can get muddy and slippery.


From Route 11 just south of Staunton, turn west onto Cochran’s Mill Road. The parking area is on the left just before crossing Folly Mills Creek.

It is best to just follow our Google Map for the exact location.  Cochran’s Mill Road is paved and the parking area is large enough for 3 or 4 vehicles.

When the trail is wet, it is best to wear non-slip shoes (not flip-flops) because it can be muddy and the rocks near the falls are very slippery.
