Back Fork of the Elk River

From Webster Springs go north on Main St. (WV 15), cross the river and turn right on Elk River Rd./Diana Dr.  Make an almost immediate bear right on Bennett Ave. (CR 24).  Stay on (CR 24) which is now Backfork Rd. and follow for 4.2 mile to Sycamore Park.  Sycamore Park is really nothing more than a muddy pull off, but just past that you will find Laurel Run Falls roadside on your left.

Continue for a very short way till you come to a bridge.  It's gated and you will need to do a 180 turn here because it's gated.  However, just at the bridge is about a 3-4 foot drop that may be worth a look.
