Click here for home page and other states. This swimming hole listing is by www. This from a visitor: Just past the unloading area there are 3 parking spots. These parking spots overlook the waterfall.
You can head downhill right at the parking spots but it's a dangerous, steep trail with lots of roots to trip you. If you walk back to the unloading area, there is a wide, much safer trail for heading down. When you get towards the bottom of the hill, go to the left as soon as there is a trail. It will take you right to the base of the waterfall, which then turns into a stream that leads to the river.
The property here is privately owned. The owner is pleased to allow people to continue to swim here. In the past, there has been some informal camping here and the owner does not want that to continue.
Please respect his wishes and do not camp, litter or otherwise abuse this area or we may loose the ability to swim here.
Nearby is camping in George Washington N. Crowded on summer weekends. Take RT 56 to the east left turn. Follow RT 56 as it drops steeply around curves and, at about 6 miles roughly , see on the right a sign for the "Tye River Wellness Center".
Near here is a small pull-off on the side of the road for parking. There is a pull off on the right before the bridge. Follow the trail downstream for a few hundred yards and it will turn left towards the river. You will pass a few very primitive camping areas then find a fairly wide pool.

This is a primo, classical swimming hole! Really nice pool in creek, always deep enough to swim, nice gradual slope, good for kids.
Also a foot slide into the deepest part of the pool and sometimes a rope to swing from. Wade in here before you jump! There are hidden rocks in the pool and the water is shockingly cold! Up the gravel road past the "pool" about. Said to be "verified". The locals seem to think there is an entrance to an underground cave at the bottom of the pool and they also think it is about 30 ft deep at the deepest spot others say there is no cave and it is not more than 10 feet deep!
I would not recommend this place to those sensitive to cold. But otherwise, on a hot day, it is a great place to swim. Tends to fill up on weekends and there are no reservations. This is a great swimming hole but you must follow these directions very carefully to find it. Here are two ways: From the Blue Ridge Parkway: This is a winding, sometimes rough, gravel road.
After you wind down the mountain for several miles, the road will level off and cross a small bridge over the East Fork creek and will run along this creek, with the creek on your left. You will pass several apparent parking pull-offs along here but ignore these until you cross over the second small bridge over the creek.
The pull-off you want is. Go back and enjoy! Then take RT south to RT east. When you cross over a small bridge over the creek and the creek is now on your right, go. Deep place in river at roadside picnic area is local swimming hole.
Stop at a cool, shady place for a picnic and a dip! Swim in river right there at picnic area. This is a very beautiful sliding place in a rock trough hollowed out by a small falls with a pool at the bottom. Can be busy with VCU college students and kids from a nearby camp. Go early in the day or camp at the site for an early start. This from a visitor in I managed to slide down, but the landing was a little rough it still hurts a bit.
Perhaps caution should be advised on using the slide when the water flow is not strong. People camp right by the falls on a flat area but there are no facilities there.
Both camping places tend to fill up on weekends and there are no reservations at either. Take RT south for about 2. If you go more than 3. Continue up FR gravel for exactly 1. It is a very short but steep climb down to the swimming place. This from a local fan: Plenty of local kids swim here, as evidence by small footprints in the sand.
Elk Creek can stay muddy for days after local rainfall, but the pool at the confluence can be quite deep for this little creek ft , with shifting sandbars, depending on flow. Also good put-in spot for canoeing Big Otter for smallmouth bass. The take-out for a canoeing trip would be the RT 24 bridge at: Go about feet on RT , following RT around left-hand bend and down a small hill.
Parking is on left side of road before the small bridge over Elk Creek. A very nice, easy and pretty hike in the Shenandoah N. Sliding down the falls is possible depending on water level. Gradual entrance, not too deep, easy current. Camp used by President Hoover is also nearby. The Appalachian trail crosses Skyline Drive here. Park and cross the road on the AT and very shortly turn left onto the blue-blazed Mill Prong Trail well marked by concrete post.
Hike down this trail, crossing streams twice, until, just after the second crossing about 1 mile total , you come to an intersection with a horse trail on the left also well marked by concrete post. Do not go left on the horse trail but continue straight - the trail is now yellow blazed. The swimming place is at the foot of the falls. If you continue down this trail a short distance, you will come to Camp Hoover and historical information about this place. Swimming hole in major river, can have strong currents, be very careful.
Not for children or weak swimmers. Popular with students from VPI and Radford, sometimes crowded. Go about mi. Swimming place is here in river. Strong currents, be very careful. Looks like it could be a good tubing place too since there is a trail you can easily walk back upstream. Go to the back of the campground where there is a trailhead and sign "Back Creek Gorge Trail".
Hike this easy, level trail which soon goes downstream along the creek and in about. Here there is a broad, low falls across the river and a deep swimming place below. For another place, continue downstream about another./p>
The whole berries mean you will have seeds, and they are kind of tart. Many people enjoy our smoothies. We are sorry you did not. We stopped here after eating and browsing the shops. Good ice cream and local service.
There is outdoor seating. Some interesting flavors of ice cream - like Playdo. There is a rotating selection of ice cream favors. It's a small parlor with interesting toys for purchase. While we had friendly service and the ice cream was tasty on a hot day, there was very little by way of actual candy for sale and it was typical candy. We had hoped for more fun, perhaps by the pound type of choices.
There were more cheap toys for sale than actual candy. We hope you enjoyed the flavors of hand dipped ice cream. We really do not advertise that we specialize in a specific candy. We offer a small variety of candy that many people do enjoy. Heard great things abourt their ice cream. Arrived to find they had five ordinary flavors because their ice cream truck broke?
And the girl who served us had long hair There really isn't any thing I can say to this review except apologize.
I am the owner and I was on vacation that week. My employees dropped the ball and the one you mentioned actually quit the day this review came out, making me come back from vacation early. I am a very small business with 2 employees at that time. I had spoken to her at least twice about the hair, and that was the smallest selection of ice cream we ever had.
I hope if you come back in summer 16, you give us another chance. Own or manage this property? I usually love Fat Pattys. Downtown, Bville, Ashland-all have been good. Even this one has been good! But the last time someone brought me a Philly from this location it was disgusting. The meat tasted funny, lots of gristle or something. That's been over a year and I can't eat at any of them now. About to get my eat on Wendy Day Skylar Day. Dinner with my babe and bestie!
Sections of this page. I have heard the first orators of Virginia but never have I heard one whose powers of delivery surpassed those of Cornstalk. Benjamin Wilson Lewis arrived to find the treaty already signed. Furious that Dunmore had excluded him, Lewis threatened to attack Indian villages the next day.
Dunmore sent him back to Point Pleasant with orders to build a fort. Upon his return to the capital, Williamsburg, Dunmore took credit for pacifying the frontier and was given a hero's welcome.
Colonel William Fleming returned home to his wife Nancy where, after recovering from his wounds, he set up practice as a surgeon. In the Spring of , fighting broke out near Boston between British and American troops, and quickly erupted into war.
Washington, commander of the new Continental Army, requested volunteers from the Virginia frontier. Within a week, two companies left for the battlefront. Unhappy it is that a Brother's Sword has been sheathed in a Brother's breast. But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice? When colonial troops captured Williamsburg, Dunmore fled back to England. The Americans were led by General Andrew Lewis. The Revolutionary War forced native people once more to chose sides between warring groups of whites.
Many thought an alliance with the British would buy them at least temporary safety. In , known as "the bloody year of the three sevens," Shawnee war parties again struck the western Virginia frontier, now nearly emptied of young men. The express came softly to the door, and by a gentle tapping waked the whole family. My father seized his gun. My stepmother waked up and dressed the children to be taken to the fort. The greatest care was taken not to waken the youngest child.
To the rest it was enough to say "Indian" and not a whimper was heard afterwards. Joseph Doddridge At the fort Lewis had built near Point Pleasant, Cornstalk warned commander Matthew Arbuckle that he was no longer able to restrain his young warriors. He took Cornstalk and his son prisoner.
A week later, two whites were killed near the fort. An angry mob went to Cornstalk's cell. Cornstalk arose and met them. Seven or eight bullets were fired into him. I grieved to see him so long a-dying, the great Cornstalk warrior who from many brave acts was undoubtedly a hero.
Captain John Stuart Five settlers were charged with murder, but they were all acquitted when no witnesses would testify against them. The Indians - the ones who were old and wise and knew the way things were going - said that there was no way to defeat the whites because the whites were like the leaves on the trees - numberless.
They were like the grass beneath their feet that, even when cut down, would spring back up with more and more than there were before.
They were like the worm which when cut in half would make not one dead worm, but two new worms. When an Indian died it was a great tragedy, a great loss to the people that caused a sorrow in their heart. An Indian was irreplaceable to them. Leading the attack was Joseph Brant, an educated Mohawk chief who was also an officer in the British army. When ammunition in the fort ran low, sixteen-year-old Betty Zane volunteered to get gunpowder stored in a nearby house.
She said your lives are more important than mine and maybe they won't shoot because I'm a woman. So she gathered up her skirts and took a running start and hit the ground going as fast as she could, and the Indians yelled out, "A squaw!
They poured a keg of gunpowder into her apron and then she ran back, and by this time the Indians were waiting, and they started firing at her, and spurts of ground flew up all around her as she ran, but she managed to get back with the gunpowder and save the day.
Raids continued, but Fort Henry was the last large-scale Indian battle in western Virginia. England gave up its land south of Canada and east of the Mississippi.
The treaty didn't mention any land for Indians. With peace, settlers poured across the mountains. If we had trade and peace with the Indians we might live very well, but at present My advice is never to think of coming through the wilderness to this country. I remain your ever affectionate, Anne Christian In , President Washington sent three thousand troops under Anthony Wayne to secure the western frontier. At the Battle of Fallen Timbers, near Lake Erie, Wayne defeated a force of two thousand Indians, then burned their villages to the ground.
The defeat crushed Indian hopes of keeping their lands in the Ohio Valley. Embittered and demoralized, the Shawnees moved west.
The time had come for the Indian epic to end east of the Mississippi. He shot and killed him without asking questions. Everywhere he delivered a simple and appealing message: Known as "circuit riders," they were so zealous that a common saying in bad weather went: Mail coaches, Conestoga wagons and herds of cattle filled the road, which connected the Eastern seaboard with the Ohio River, the gateway to the West.
Steamboats, a recent invention, carried freight and passengers from Wheeling to New Orleans. Iron foundries, cotton mills, distilleries, glass and tobacco factories opened along the waterfront. The road brought thousands of European immigrants, who found work as laborers. By , Wheeling had grown into an industrial center with the second largest population in Virginia. Only Richmond, the capital, was bigger. Despite its growth, western Virginia had little political power within the state.
Eastern counties held more seats in the legislature and Virginia law limited voting rights to landowners, which favored wealthy eastern planters and excluded many western laborers. Western delegate John George Jackson called the situation "a burlesque upon representative government. In response to complaints from western leaders, Virginia called a convention in to review its constitution.
Representing Brooke County in northwestern Virginia was Alexander Campbell, an energetic Irish preacher who had formed his own dissident church, the Disciples of Christ. Campbell argued against basing suffrage on wealth. Why not use strength, intellect or artistic talent as a standard, he asked. The Old Dominion has long been celebrated for producing men that can split hairs in all questions of political economy. But when they return from Congress, they have Negroes to fan them asleep.
A western Virginia statesmen, though far inferior in rhetoric, has this advantage, that when he returns home, he takes off his coat, and takes hold of the plough. This preserves his Republican principles pure and uncontaminated. In the summer of , Nat Turner, an educated slave who had visions of black and white spirits engaged in battle, led slaves on a rampage through Southampton County, Virginia.
Fifty-five whites were killed. Turner and sixteen other slaves were captured and hanged at Jerusalem, the county seat. Turner's rebellion spread panic throughout the South. Virginia increased its militia, restricted the movement of slaves and prohibited their education. But some Virginians began to question slavery itself. Slave families were routinely separated. A slaveholder in Shepherdstown offered to sell a female slave with or without her four children. In Harpers Ferry, a woman gave her granddaughter a slave as a birthday present.
In the hot saltworks along the Kanawha River, slaves were leased, not bought, because the dangerous work wore them out so quickly. Runaway slaves were lashed publicly over several days, each new whipping called "tickling up the old scabs.
Many western Virginians who didn't own slaves resented those who did. Here you will find yourself among a people who can take care of themselves. Spurred by epidemics of cholera and yellow fever in the lowlands, the elite of eastern Virginia escaped in summer to western Virginia's mountain spas. On the morning of June 1, , fifty prominent American artists boarded a train at the Camden Street depot in Baltimore.
They were guests of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the proud owner of what few had thought possible: He abandoned painting and began writing and illustrating travel stories for Harper's Magazine under the pen name "Porte Crayon. As the slavery conflict intensified, western Virginia, with its slave and free labor, became a border between two ways of life.
On a warm spring day in , Rebecca Harding saw a gaunt man walking down a street in Wheeling, "his eyes fixed and lips moving," she noted, "like a man under the influence of morphia. There they easily seized the federal armory and arsenal, took a half-dozen prisoners, then barricaded themselves in the arsenal engine house.
Little else in Brown's life had gone as smoothly. He had roamed through six states, failed as a cattleman, merchant and land speculator, fathered twenty children, and fallen deeply into debt. Yet Brown felt God had given him a special mission.
Units of the Virginia militia arrived that afternoon and killed Dangerfield Newby, an ex-slave. Newby had joined Brown with the hope of freeing his wife and children, who were still in bondage.
Someone cut off his ears as souvenirs. Three more of Brown's men were killed in sporadic fighting. Townspeople shot at two of the lifeless bodies throughout the day; the third was partially eaten by a hog. That night, ninety United States Marines arrived from Washington.
They were led by Robert E. Lee, a fifty-two-year-old Army colonel. At dawn the next day, Lee demanded that Brown surrender. When he refused, Marines battered a hole in the engine house door. As Brown was carried out of the engine house, a hushed silence fell on the crowd that had gathered. Special prosecutor Andrew Hunter vowed to have Brown "tried, sentenced and hung--all within ten days. The judge asked if he had any final words. Brown's wife Mary arrived from Kansas. In his jail cell, they talked for several hours.
Then Mary left to await delivery of her husband's body. On December 2, reporters from across the country, including David Hunter Strother, joined fifteen hundred soldiers around a gallows outside Charles Town.
Cadets from the Virginia Military Institute were issued new muskets from the Harpers Ferry arsenal and told to prepare for any emergency. Their commander was Major Thomas J. Jackson, a pious, eccentric West Point graduate from western Virginia. I sent up the petition that he might be saved. I hope that he was prepared to die, but I am doubtful. In November of , an Illinois congressman was elected the sixteenth President of the United States.
A moderate on slavery, Abraham Lincoln's election sent shock waves through the South. South Carolina seceded from the Union, followed soon by six other states.
Western delegate John S. Carlile of Harrison County, a failed businessman who had become an eloquent political showman, led the fight against secession. On April 15 Lincoln issued a call for troops. Two days later, former governor Henry Wise entered the Virginia Convention, drew a pistol from his shirt and announced that the state militia had seized the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry. Militia forces at Harpers Ferry were put under the command of Colonel Thomas Jackson, who had not hesitated in siding with his native Virginia.
He had poor eyesight, was partially deaf and suffered from numerous ailments, which he said were punishments from God for his sins. Obsessed with his health, Jackson refused to drink tea or coffee, ate fruit only in the morning, and often held up an arm so blood could flow back into his body.
Jackson, now sporting a full beard, dismantled the Federal armory, sent its machinery to Richmond and set the building on fire. As the war intensified, pro-union leaders meeting in the Custom House at Wheeling declared the Richmond government null and void.
They formed the "Reorganized" Government of Virginia, with Wheeling as its capital, and named a new Virginia governor, loyal to the Union. Francis Harrison Pierpont, a former schoolteacher and lawyer for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, vowed to raise more Union troops, despite the fact that his government had no money. Rebel soldiers signed the hotel's register alongside wealthy southern guests, who hadn't let a war stop their annual vacation.
Yet for most Confederates encamped in the mountains, conditions couldn't have been worse. Food and supplies were scarce. It rained constantly, then snowed. Diseases spread--pneumonia, mumps, then an epidemic of measles. In the spring, Jackson led his troops on a brilliant campaign in the Shenandoah Valley, repeatedly defeating larger Union forces before disappearing into the hills. Jackson, who prayed three times a day, seemed fearless under fire. On May 29, , Waitman T.
Carlile's supporters were shocked. His conversion "is greater than that of St. Paul," said a colleague. Finally, on December 31, Lincoln signed it. In , as Union and Confederate armies in western Virginia were locked in a military stalemate, a second war emerged, a war without uniforms or codes of conduct. In Martinsburg, Belle Boyd claimed she obtained information from Union officers in the privacy of her bedroom.
A Confederate officer said Boyd could "charm the heart out of monk and cause him to break his vows of celibacy. Boyd was arrested seven times, each time boasting of her deeds and delighting in the public outrage. Then, on May 10, a warm spring day, Jackson closed his eyes. In Richmond, five thousand people met the train carrying Jackson's body. Thousands more filed past his coffin as it lay in state. In death, Jackson became even more famous.
Hunter advanced south and occupied Lexington, where he set fire to the Virginia Military Institute. His chief of staff, David Hunter Strother, had a statue of Washington removed from the school and sent to Wheeling as a trophy for the new state.
Two weeks later, at While Sulphur Springs, Hunter gave orders to burn down The White, which had been converted into a Confederate hospital. Captain Henry du Pont, a regular guest at the resort, talked him out of it. Hunter moved north to Charles Town, where set fire to the home of his cousin, Andrew Hunter, the prosecutor of John Brown. When Lincoln received reports of Hunter's actions, he relieved him of his command.
On his final day, Hunter had a Union deserter shot. On the night of April 8, , cavalry private William L. Union Private Joshua Winters returned to his family's farm and took his sister Annie horseback-riding. Anderson Hatfield disbanded the Logan Wildcats and was hailed as a local hero. McNeill's Rangers surrendered everything but their saddles and a few new rifles.
One Ranger asked if he could keep some gunpowder to go hunting. Anna Jarvis lost three more children to disease and died on the second Sunday in May.
Through her daughter's efforts, the day became a national holiday, Mother's Day. David Hunter Strother returned to Berkeley Springs, where he managed his family's hotel and resumed his writing. His war memoir was serialized in Harper's Magazine. Carlile moved to Maryland, ran for Congress as a Democrat and lost, then returned to Clarksburg and ran as a Republican. He lost again, and became a farmer.
Confederate James Hall, who had been wounded at Gettysburg, began the long journey home from Appomattox. The majority of us will never meet again. Slept in a bed last night. The first for many months. Came to Philippi and stopped with Aunt Betsy Jarvis. Tensions from the war continued to simmer in West Virginia during the summer of Former Confederates campaigned to have two northeastern counties rejoin Virginia.
Local newspapers refused to use the word "West" in their mastheads. As whites clung to Old Virginia, southern blacks welcomed its demise. Thousands of former slaves arrived in the Shenandoah and Potomac valleys of West Virginia seeking a new life. Nathan Brackett was named president and Anne Dudley appointed to the faculty.
That year, Sarah Jane Foster contracted yellow fever while teaching at a freedmen's school in South Carolina. She died a few weeks later at the age of twenty-eight. Democrats failed to change the names of Lincoln and Grant counties to Davis and Lee, but they managed to move the state capital from Wheeling--"that iron-hearted city," as one southern Democrat put it. The effects of government were put aboard a steamboat on the Ohio and taken south to Charleston, a small, nearly inaccessible village in the Kanawha Valley.
Debar posted advertisements in Europe promoting West Virginia as the "Switzerland of America," a place, he promised, where industry and independence would co-exist. Debar did manage to attract a group of Swiss immigrants, who founded the community of Helvetia and joined other self-sufficient farmers in the sparsely-settled mountains. The only other common way to make money was selling moonshine, a whiskey made from corn.
Farmers made barrels of moonshine in backwoods stills and sold it widely despite a federal law prohibiting the sale of untaxed liquor. Then, beginning in the s, a temperance movement swept the country.
Hayes' wife Lucy, a leader in the Women's Christian Temperance Union, replaced champagne at state dinners with lemonade. She soon became known as "Lemonade Lucy. Hayes sent Federal tax collectors into the mountains to crack down on moonshine. Known as "revenuers," the agents hired informants to spy on their neighbors, disguised themselves as land buyers and led armed raids on stills.
In the Spring of , work began on the extension of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad through southern West Virginia. The project was the brainchild of the railroad's president, Collis Potter Huntington. Born into poverty, Huntington had peddled jewelry in the Midwest and butter in New York before making a fortune selling supplies to miners during California's Gold Rush. He is "a hard and cheery old man," wrote a colleague, "with no more soul than a shark.
Now Huntington's goal was to build his own transcontinental railroad, and he pursued it ruthlessly. Agents recruited thousands of Irish and German laborers from the docks in New York, and thousands of southern blacks, who were attracted by a wage four times greater than what they were paid on plantations.
Railroad workers stayed on to work in the mines. Stores, sawmills, whole towns sprang up in the wilderness. He bought thirteen more railroads, created his transcontinental dream, yet seemed discontent and complained constantly about his health.
Huntington's missed opportunity was seized by others. Henry Gassaway Davis' West Virginia Central Railroad became the backbone of his growing empire of timber and coal companies. Davis' closest friend, Johnson N. Camden, a tall, reserved oil developer from Parkersburg, built two railroads into the mountains. Davis and Camden bought land and formed businesses together, and seized the reins of political power in West Virginia.
The two industrialists turned political influence into an art form, handing out campaign contributions, private loans to politicians and newspaper editors, and all-important government jobs. The settlement awarded Hatfield all of Cline's property--five thousand acres of virgin forest. Overnight, Hatfield became one of the largest landowners in the Tug Valley. Tall and formidable, with gray-eyes and a flowing black beard, Hatfield was known for his marksmanship and the bear cubs he kept as pets.
It was said that he had fought off a mountain lion as a boy, leading his mother to say he "was not afraid of the Devil himself. Hatfield married a neighbor's daughter, Levicy Chafin, on the eve of the Civil War.
After the war, they settled on a corner of his father's land near Mate Creek. The couple raised thirteen children. Aggressive and ambitious, Hatfield borrowed money from local businessmen to expand his timber business. He hired friends and relatives from both sides of Tug Fork.
Two of McCoy's brothers joined in, stabbing Hatfield twenty times before shooting him in the back.
