Little Devils Stairs Falls in Virginia

Little Devils Stairs Falls in Shenandoah National Park

Little Devils Stairs Falls in Shenandoah National Park is easy to reach but do not expect much of a waterfall during dry spells. As such the waterfall is not considered a destination in itself; most folks visit the waterfall during longer loop hikes in the Keyser Run area.

Nevertheless, if you are in the area after a rain spell, check it out. It is a very pleasant, almost flat, walk down the Keyser Run Fire Road and then on the short, winding trail down to the Falls. The last 0.4 miles is somewhat steep but the trail is good.

Directions

Park in the Keyser Run Parking area at Mile 19.4 where there is room for a dozen or so vehicles.
