Big Cove Run Falls is one of those special kind of places that you may not think you will ever see, but here is a chance to see something special. A serene forested creek setting with a gorgeous waterfall.

Take WV 92 south from US 50 to CR 2.  Sign on side of road at intersection says "Cove Run Rd" but on google it's "Coal Run Rd".  Either way, you turn here (39.241110, -79.888908).  The road runs along Big Cove Run down to the Tygart River.  Follow the road all the way down (almost to the bottom).  You will see a concrete crossing on your left and a house up the hill on your right.  Go down a bit further and there is a place to park on the left.  It gets really rough below this point, so, unless you have a high clearance 4WD, don't go to the bottom.  I would say, do a turn around at the concrete ford and back down the hill to the parking spot, or back out when you leave.

You'll see the falls from the road, so make your way down and if the water is high, you will get wet crossing the creek, and the best vantage points are had from the far side.BigCoveRun01
