Lands Run Falls in Virginia

Lands Run Falls in Shenandoah National Park – Warren County

Lands Run Falls is a great little leg-stretcher hike not far for the northern entrance to Shenandoah National Park. It is only 0.6 miles to the Falls with a gentle profile.

BUT – the Falls require a bit of bushwhacking and it is very steep next to the creek. Use caution.

Most folks do not know about this waterfall and in summer it is a tiny trickle so do plan to visit after heavy rains!


Park at the Lands Run parking area at mile 9.2 then follow the fire road down until you cross Lands Run.  You are now at the top of the Falls.

At that point retrace your steps a few yards and turn downhill. The creek should be on your left as you scramble down. Soon you will hear and see the Lands Run Falls then it is time to be extra careful!

Please study my Virginia Waterfall Map for accurate locations.
