Geocache Description:

A short drive on US-58 from Abingdon or Damascus, Virginia. Turn on SR-711 and go for only .6 mile. A wide spot in the road is at the cache for parking. You may want to pass the cache and turn around and come back towards US-58 in order to park.

This is the 9th in our Fallin' For Virginia series. Our intent is to bring you to some of the most beautiful waterfalls of Southwest Virginia. This little waterfall is not a Niagra Falls but it is still worth seeing. The Falls of Alvarado Road are part of a thin stream that tumbles for 15 feet over mossy covered rocks and then goes under the road and on down to the South Fork of the Holston River.

While the waterfall is small, in volume, it it is very photogenic. Bring your camera.

Please replace the cache back to exactly where you found it. We wanted to place a larger cache container, but as you will see, the area doesn't lend itself for a big hunt.

Take care and enjoy some nature's finest work. Have a good caching day.
