Screw Auger Falls is super easy to get to and right off the road. Not a huge waterfall in October but surely spring time it's impressive.

Right on Route 26, Screw Auger Falls is worth a stop and even offers a viewing window with a unique river-level view at the right water level.

Stopped after a hike on the Appalachian Trail. This falls is easy to access and very pretty. Plenty of parking, a few picnic tables near the stream, and lots of shade to enjoy. What a great place to cool down on a hot summer day!

Wonderful day sight seeing & enjoying the water, waterfalls and hiking. You definitely want to see this if in the area. Great for families or couples. Beautiful sights but bring the big spray for sure.
