Marlinton: Been there many times. Without a doubt the best riding East of the Mississippi. If you're lookin' for a really nice place to stay get a couple guys together and get a log cabin at Jerico Bed and Breckfast. Kitchens, showers, hottubs. This is livin ! Call them and ask for Lindy: she's the greatest !

Too early to tell if I'm in yet.

Another option for you FF'ers is to rent the cabin at the very top of the Cass Scenic railroad line. This place is severly isolated, surrounded with bears, and totally cool. Take your fav squeeze and let your imagination run wild. Don't ask me how I know....

I had the week off leading up to BYOB '10 and explored my way up through WV to PA.

Here's a few pics I took near Marlington this past summer.

Tentatively in.

My dog has osteosarcoma. He had to have a leg amputated because of the cancer. His last chemo is next Thursday. I'm hoping he'll be OK, but June seems like a long way off.

Don't forget National Geographic: back in the early 90s, there was a 'sidebar' about modern surveying of the VA-WV line in this area. 'where's the state line?'
See map. W @ 84 from 'Frost," R @ NFR55 @ crest. Dump out to 39 a lil E of Rimel. There's a lot in between to explore, n 2 s, W more than E.

a Burke's Garden run will be funnest.

Falls of Hills Creek

The Falls of Hills Creek are special in their beauty.

The 114 acre area sits just south of Highway 39.
Five miles west of the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center (discussed in a previous post).

It is marked with a Monongahela National Forest Recreation sign.




Travel down the gravel road and park in the small lot.
Rest rooms are available.

It is a quiet area where three lively waterfalls flow – each more spectacular than the other.

The Hills Creek is rated as one of West Virginia’s cleanest streams by
the Department of Natural Resources.



The first fall drops 25 feet, crashing to the rocks below.



Continue on to the second waterfall via a dirt path and a set of wooden steps.

It is 45 feet tall and much wider than the first fall.



The dirt walkway, interspersed with rocks and small boulders,
continues onward to the third and final waterfall.

Towards the end the dirt path turns into metal steps down a set of switchbacks to the overlook.

The view of the 63 foot third fall is worth every step.



From the top fall to the lowest fall, the Creek drops 220 feet.

You will appreciate the natural beauty of Hills Creek
as it cascades and rolls over moss covered boulders.
