Geocache Description:

Take SR 72 out of Coeburn or Dungannon, Virginia to the parking area for the Upper Falls of the Little Stony Creek. From the parking area there is a fairly easy trail but watch your step for roots and small rocks that trip.

Welcome to the latest edition of our Fallin' For Virginia cache series. We are attempting to bring you to the most beautiful waterfalls of Southwest Virginia. This waterfall is just below the Upper Water Falls of the Little Stony Creek.

From the parking area you will pass the Upper Falls and it's cache (GCWW5M) Continuing down the trail will bring you to the Troll cache (GCMDGK) and then to this falls and cache. If you go an another short distance you can find "Granny's" cache (GC57DF). The entire trail is 2.8 miles in length through a 400 foot deep and 1700 foot wide gorge. Of course, you are not going that far but you might want to. The trail is fairly gentle and there are many wonders of nature to see.

GPS reception was very difficult so you may need to use the hints. If you don't mind, post your coordinates at the cache if your GPS is recieving with good accuracy. You are looking for a camo-taped Rubbermaid container. Please put the cache and everything else back the way you found it.

By all means, take your camera. Take good walking shoes and your bathing suit (warm weather only, ha!). Great place for a picnic. Please practice CITO. The place is very clean but there are those who respect nothing. When placing the cache, we saw some trash but didn't have a bag.

I want to give a special thanks to mtmanva2 for acting as the guide for the trip and help in placing the cache. He is what caching is all about.
