Just know.  This is PRIVATE PROPERTY.  This in not a swimming hole.  A lot of abuse happens here, so, view the falls, take some pics and move on.  Don't swim, camp, leave trash, or hang out too long.  It's already becoming more developed and OFF LIMITS, so let's try and make sure everyone gets the same opportunity as you.  Don't mess it up.

Sovern Run empties into Big Sandy Creek. From Exit 23 on I-68, drive south on N. Preston Hwy (WV 26) for just under 2 miles and turn right on Pleasant Valley (CR-26/16). Follow just over a mile to a fork in the road. Bear right at the fork onto Little Sandy Rd. (CR-14/3) and follow for 2.6 miles. Take a hard right onto Rockville/Mt. Nebo Rd. (CR-14). You are now on a dirt road. Follow for just about one mile. You will drive by a house on your left, cross the bridge and park. You can see the falls from the bridge. Continue down this road and cross the bridge at Big Sandy Creek and park down to the right for Wonder Falls. This is also good parking for Sovern.
