I call this waterfall Kanawha Bridge Falls because it’s nearly across from the now defunct bridge spanning the Kanawha River for Kanawha Falls Road. I would call it Kanawha Falls Bridge Road, but I feel like that too closely resembles Kanawha Falls.

This waterfall is another roadside waterfall along Route 60 in between Charlton Heights and Glen Ferris in Fayette County heading east. There’s a nice pull-off area for this waterfall. Like the other roadside waterfalls in this area, it does dry up pretty easily but does make for very photogenic shots after a good rain, as the falls empty into a nice pool beneath.
