Garrett Creek Falls in Washington County, Virginia
Garrett Creek Falls (45-foot) is a roadside waterfall located on private property but clearly visible from the road.
If driving north on Garrett Creek Road (CR 611), Garrett Creek Falls will be on your left. You can pull over on the narrow road and take a quick picture but do not linger long and please do not trespass! It is tempting to scramble down the bank to take a closer look but don’t!
Unfortunately you may find some trash at the foot of the falls. Some it are just the result of flooding but folks also use ravines to dump their old tires, appliances and furniture. Really sad.
Garrett Creek Falls can be found on our Virginia Waterfalls Google Map.
We are currently working on three exciting projects for 2018!
1. Our new book “Virginia Waterfalls – Guide for Explorers” is due for release in late November. We are still discovering new waterfalls, editing photos and preparing 3D maps to be included!
2. One of our passions is finding cute downtowns while on the road. The kind of places where one can park the car and safely stroll around to shop and eat in unique local establishments. Around the country, and in Florida in particular, there is a movement underway to revitalize the main streets and to re-establish a sense of community that was lost when large shopping malls were built. Starting in our home state of Florida, we select about 100 communities and begin the difficult process of selecting the Top 20 most interesting downtowns to visit! The aim is to release our Top 20 on January 1, 2019!
3. Our work on a new Blue Ridge Parkway book was delayed in 2016 and 2017 due to illness and family events. But we are back and committed to get this project done by early 2019.
