The Blackwater Falls Trail at Blackwater Falls State Park in Davis, West Virginia is an easy 0.2 mile out-and-back hike that leads down to viewing platforms next to Blackwater Falls.

This trail starts at the Blackwater Falls trading post parking lot and heads down a series of stairs and gravel trail to reach the falls. During warmer months, the trail leads all the way to the base of the falls to a large lookout platform; however, In the winter, the staircase down to the falls is blocked off as the park does not want to risk visitors getting too close to the falls when there aren't many people around - you can still get a great view of Blackwater Falls though.

This is one of the most highly-trafficked trails at the park.

Note: If you would like to view Blackwater Falls and need a more accessible trail, check out the Gentle Trail across the river. It's wheelchair accessible and a similar length.
