Westerly Falls

(37.993234, -81.325329)

You get to Westerly Falls on Paint Creek from either the Mossy or Mahan exits of I-77. There's a back road called the Paint Creek Scenic Byway (Milburn Rd.) that runs along side the interstate. From Mahan, take exit 66 and turn left (south) on the adjacent 2-lane, Paint Creek Road. It soon turns into a narrow blacktop. From Mossy, take exit 60, and go east on SR 612 toward Oak Hill. Drive 0.1 mile. At the bridge turn left at the stop sign, and follow this narrow road. There's a pull-off along Paint Creek about 1/2 way between Mossy and Mahan that overlooks Westerly falls. There is a rail grade across the creek that can be accessed from a tressle up stream. If you walk it back down to the falls, it's a better view, or at least another option if interested. It's not far.
