Blackwater Falls State Park - West Virginia. Blackwater Falls State Park offers some of the Mountain State's most spectacular vistas. To many, the most awe-inspiring of those is the spot where the namesake cascade tumbles five stories into a gorge that then twists for 8 miles through the Alleghany Mountains. During the fall, the surrounding forests become a brilliant spectacle of autumn colors, bathing the mountains in varying hues of red, orange and yellow.
