Straight Branch Falls in Virginia

Straight Branch Falls in Washington County, Virginia

You’ve most probably driven right by Straight Branch Falls without knowing it’s there next to the road!

We think Straight Branch Falls is one of the prettiest roadside Falls in Virginia. It is only 20 feet high but very photogenic especially in the Fall.

As a bonus you can ride your bike on the very popular Virginia Creeper Trail nearby!


As you depart the town of Damascus on the south end, turn left on US-58 then drive for 5.5 miles before slowing down to look for a waterfall on the left.

Park in a small pullout (at 5.6 miles) then walk back a short distance. You will hear the Falls before seeing it!

It is best to study our Virginia Waterfall Map for precise directions.

Please be careful while walking. Some drivers do not slow down around those corners.
