Falls Ridge Preserve - Blue Ridge Mountains, Virginia

An iPhone photo from our hike through The Nature Conservancy's Falls Ridge Preserve in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

The waterfalls on this trail are very accessible for photography compared to other falls we've visited, and are at the beginning of the hike, making us instantly regret not bringing better cameras, but then we hiked the steep trails up and down the ridge, and were no longer sorry we didn't lug a bunch of gear this time.

The preserve is easy to miss, and only accessible via some dirt roads and a somewhat dodgy old bridge. We weren't sure at first that the Smart car could make it in, but the falls, the rock formations, the caves, and the peace of minimal foot traffic made this day trip well worth it. We pretty much had the forest to ourselves.
