Summersville Lake

Unless you have a boat, you will probably want to wait till fall, when they drain the lake, to hike to these falls. However, they are visible from above as well.

Pirates Cove

(38.24313, -80.8486)

Drive 21 miles north of Fayetteville on US 19. Just after you go over the bridge, on your right is a parking area for the lake. It's climbers access area. Hike the trail down to the lake. Some also call this Bastards Cove or Salmon Run.

Whippoorwill Falls

(38.2338, -80.8552)

From the New River Bridge, drive 19 miles. Take Hilltop Drive/Whippoorwill Road on your left. Follow paved road almost to the end (100 yds.), take a left and park then follow the dirt road until you reach a fork and take a left. Travel this trail past a campsite, down and left. Cut down the steep, often muddy hill to the lake.
