Geocache Description:

From Abingdon, Virginia take US-19 west. Turn right on VA-700 and left on Fall Hill Road. Fall Hill Road (VA-684) is a loop which leaves and returns to VA-700 (Rich Valley Road). The cache is easy to get to and fairly easy to find. There are two caches and a lot to see on this loop. Parking is by the cache.

Here is number eleven in our Fallin' For Virginia cache series. This is another beautiful but "unknown" waterfall of Southwest Virginia.

Falls Hill Creek tumbles down the mountain to shortly join the North Fork of the Holston River. Along the way, it forms two falls (35 feet and 20 feet high respectively). Here you get two falls for the price of one plus a narrow ravine which forms a pretty rock flume.

Walk back up the road for about 120 feet to get the best view of the larger falls. There is no need to leave the road to view the falls or to find the cache.

Mother Nature was trying to out do herself with this one. Please bring your camera and please put the cache exactly back where you found it.

Very close by is our Fallin For Virginia V - Cabin Creek cache (GCWQ2K). Yes, this one is number eleven and in less than two miles is number five. What can we tell you. We take 'em as we see 'em or in other words, we cache them as we find them.

Enjoy and have a good caching day.
